Application of tungsten-arc inert-gas (TIG) welding with narrow gap has been considered as a hopeful joint method to suppress post welding deformation for thick plates. We studied some parameters to predict the post-welding deformation for the narrow gap shape of TIG welding. As for cutting methods, the water jet method was applied for weld joints in this study. Reweld tests by using the TIG welding method were successfully performed under the condition of cutting surface as it was. Results of tensile tests for reweld joints showed no reduction in strength. This reveals a good prospect of providing reweld groove surface without any machining on site
