An intro, and some picts. will go a long ways toward getting the answers you seek.
It's cracked, because it is over stressed.I was also considering simply sealing the cracks with epoxy paint or some other oil resistant paint and riding the wheels off it.
someone with experience should do it. the hole drilling is good info, ive chased these cracks. maybe, find the cracks, drill the holes, then take it to a local welder. shouldnt cost much.How do you set up the Tig? What rods do you use? Thanks for the input, I was hoping someone would be able to speak from experience on this. I've done a lot of fabrication but I don't weld, not yet at least. I've got access to a tig and mig but I'll have to round up someone to do the welding.
I find the hardest part of dealing with welders is finding someone who actually knows what they're doing and not just blowing smoke. I've seen a lot of guys who claim to be great welders who really don't know half of what they claim.
