Having a quick look around on google, it looks like the process is called "pickling"... you can get pickling paste, which sounds like what JW is talking about. If you google for "pickling paste" it returns loads of results, some which show you the finish after using it!

If/when you do polish the marks out, can you tell me what you used, as I need to do it to mine

Hi

We use a product called ANTOX 71E+

it is like a gel you paint it on and leave it for 15-45 mins then wash off, normally gets it clean but if not wash off with the help of a wire brush

If you're using satin finished stainless, after cleaning up the welds, using a wire brush in the same direction as the satin finish gives a fairly good match.
Personally, I don''t like high polished stainless....well, I do for 10mins then it becomes too bling and I satin it or paint it satin black.

Yep, pickling paste is the general term used for the product. I'll go and check out the name now.

There was a thread running on this forum a while back about folks who use their A frames for pulling skiers. The theory was if I remember that the towing height was an advantage for some aplications

My A-frame was built and connected in such a fashion as to pull skiers and wakeboarders from the top (better than a low pull) and it works well. I also have dual towing eyes at just above waterline for more heavy duty towing.
