I'm trying to lay out the door cutout for a vertical offset tank build (120 gallon compressor tank). I have read that I need to stay at least 1" away from the factory weld seams with all my cuts. I will be using a 48"x1/8" piano hinge for my door. Is it OK if my door hinge welding is directly on the factory seam welding???

Yes you can, you can even grind it smooth.
It's not a presser vessel anymore.

You can cut that close as long as you have room to seal you will be fine as Maniac stated.
