English term or phrase:fingernailing
1 - Off-Center - Refers to the coating being eccentric and thicker on one side of the electrode than the
opposite side. Also referred to as “FINGERNALING”, which isn’t always due to coating eccentricity. Could
be a result of formulation as well.
2 - The electrode burns off unevenly, leaving a projection on the side where the coating is the heaviest.
This condition is often referred to as "FINGERNAILING."
