  • Weld on hooks

    Is there a procedure for welding these and maintaining their maximum strength?

    I'm planning on using my tig to weld them.

    Thanks

    They are designed and marketed as weld on hooks. I think I would be more worried about the welds breaking. The tech sheet states just that.

                That doesnt look bad.. try wrapping your corners. That will make for a whole lot stronger weld

                            I had the same problem posting on another thread. If you post another site, it won't accept it without approval.
