    Great, I broke one today and will have to fix it tomorrow. The cutting off part really bites!

      not putting your job down, but I certainly can't see 15 pounds of filler metal there. 5 pounds, maybe. IF that. Been doing this for years, I know. Better check your scales
      Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

        Exactly what i was thinking when reading this thread.Did you fix the broken shank or replace the entire thing?

          Try a #4 O/A tip.If you got enough amps like 425-450 a 3/8" carbon arc rod will eat that for breakfast.
