To be honest, I sort of agree with you regarding the welds. However, I don't own a KM nor have I smoked from one, so perhaps they smoke so well that the minor imperfections are a small price to pay. You can try to contact John, but do realize he doesn't make the hookahs, and what you have been shipped seems normal and characteristic of KM's in general. Perhaps John can point you toward another brand should you find the craftsmanship of KM's disappointing.
