the possible causes can be found, if needed, in TM 9-3419-228-10, beginning

(8) Grinding the Welded Band. After welding, the band must be dressed
to remove excess metal or flash from the weld. Grind the welded area down
to the same thickness as the rest of the band. The weld should be ground
with the teeth facing out (figure 27). Care must be taken during grinding
so as not to hit the teeth, not to grind deeper than the thickness of the
band, and not to burn or overheat the weld area.
The weld should pass
freely through the gage above the grinding wheel.
Use care in handling the band; the weld is brittle
because it has not yet been annealed.
