Using minimal heat I finish welded the tacked side of the arm. After letting it cool while clamped to the table I set it up on the mill to quickly remove the excess weld bead. Yes it is faster and easier and yields better results than grinding however I did fry a 3/4 in. 4 flute end mill in the process. I can get it re-sharpened.

If you have to force it there must be a better way
