    Good post, Admweld. A proper repair, better, faster, stronger, cheaper in the long run, than trying to chase cracks, and fill huge gaps in what you had to start with.

    This is the type of post, others can learn from.

    Just curious, how's things going work-wise for you right now?? I'm sure there was plenty of snow-plowing, but what about the welding???

    Still slow here, but it's starting to pick up some. Mostly off-season maintenance, but that's all I normally get this time of year anyway. Not quite ready, to move back to MA.
    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    I assume you used NR-212 or 232? How is the cable hoist holding up?
