    DOM- Drawn Over Mandrel, seam is hard to see, nice,smooth finish on outside and inside.

    HREW- Hot Rolled Electrically Welded, seam is visible inside, you should be able to find the seam on the outside too.

    thats about all I can tell you, I have some of each in the shop, just what I have noticed.

    Well Clay the tubing looks to be HREW. But from what I have read this morning it should be ok for me.
