weld-through primer - make?

Hey all

In your oppinions, who makes a good weld-through primer, or THE BEST weld-though primer?

Gonna be ordering a few more spot-weld drills from eastwood, maybe they have something i can put on my order? (those solid tool steel drills are awesome!)

The one I like the best is Worth but all of them are fine.

Most of them are 85-95% zinc.
The more zinc the less splatter.

As far as the weld through primer, I have tried 2 of them, and I like the 3M the best. It does seem like more zinc. Ofcourse I only live a couple of miles from head quarters, so I may be bias. Anyway, about the spot weld drills. Yes they are awesome. By the way, I work for a company called Viking Drill & Tool. Yup, you guessed it, we make many of those drills. We private label many of those for companies in the US. All top industrial quality. If you see spotweld drills that are nitride with a dark brown (not gold) coating) buy em. They are truly awesome. The gold color nitriding is nothing more than flash plating, but the dark brown is a true nitride chemical hardening of the tool.Flash plating only hardens the outer cutting edge but the core of the tool is still soft, but the chemical treatment hardens the tool all the way through. In a spotweld drill, notice you have multiple cutting edges that are
developed by splitting the point in at least 2 angles. Thorough hardening is key for best performance. Anyway, the bright ones are not that bad if quality made, but nothing like the brown nitride.Just my boring 2 bits worth.
