    Cool Backyard weld job!!!

    A lady brought this lawnmower in today and felt the welding her neighbor guy did was unsafe. He had a chunk of angle and a Sawzall blade melted into it. Easy fix, remove the part and weld in a new piece, should be safer now....Bob

    Thats funny. I have probably fixed a hundred mower decks or more over the years, push mowers up to bush hogs, [father owns a lawn equipment business] and I've seen some bad repairs but have never seen a sawzall blade used in one

    Default What's wrong with that?

    Haven't you ever used sawsall filler rods before? Everytime I think I've seen it all, I get to see a little more. The bad part of the whole thing is that the guy who did that is probably proud of the job he did on the repair. I think they really need to make everyone who uses a welder get certified, but then again it won't remove the lack of common sense and poor judgement. There is way too much dangerous stuff rolling down our highways and our workplaces. Glad you were able to fix it right and get the lady going again. Did she at least offer to cut your grass for you?

    Hope he charged her a lot. Those sawzall blades are expensive.

    i gotta agree but i never considerd it as a good filler choice.. ..aaaah all the new possibilitys that have just poped into my head..(plenty of empty space in therre for them to play)

    thats horible, and as said abouve, i bet he is bragging about what a great job he did fixing the mower to all his frends. probly open up a welding bizz in the area soon. with skills like that you better watch out, he could dubble your buisness.

    But, you missed the point... the Sawsall blade was used to cut the dandelions.

    Except he used the 8 TPI and everybody knows that 14 TPI is the correct tool for the job.
