English term or phrase: fin weld inside stub fixture
Could anybody please make clear for me what this fixture could be?
I only know it's meant for welding some part of a railcar underframe. But I cannon understand what the "fin" and "stub" elements stand for - please advise!

Explanation:
Only one term per question, so I have only answered for "fin weld", which is what you said is the problem.

Look at the 2nd drawing where the fin welds are shown (not a very good drawing, but I think it is fairly clear:

"Roof covering or wall covering according to claim 1, characterized in that the flexible tubes (19) are closed by welding at their oppositely situated end faces, preferably by a fin weld (22) in each case."

"Guides for performing lap welds, fin welds and hem welds, as well as many variations thereupon, are also disclosed."

On the other hand, this ref shows something completely different, more line a fin that is welded around a tube.
