Seems like the process would have to be slightly more precise to avoid having a bump or divot at the weld, since the diamond is more continuous and less textured than saw teeth.

But I wonder if there's somewhere that would sell a bunch of 1/4" diamond coil stock, and then you could take it to your local bandsaw guys and have them weld it for you.
I would be inclined to try to remember that the goal here is to make glass with the limited time we have. It's easy to go off on tangents.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
