    Is the second pic the finished weld? If so, doesnt the weld section need to be relative to material thickness?
    It seems thick for a single pass or no bevel. It also cold be my eyes.

    It's about a 3/8 legs for the bead and the gusset is 3/4 t-400. It's to help stabilise the front idlers.
    I finishing installing the blade stops 3"X6"x10" with a radius on the same machine. And it only calls for 3/8" legs on the bead and 1.5 " run off ""feather to ctick that big block to the side of the blade mount frame.
    I'll post pictures of it.

    I've heard that a fillet on both sides only needs to total 75% of the thinner base metal thickness.

    3/4'' x 75% = .28

    Thats why 1/4, 5/16, and 3/8 fillet sizes are the most popular. It takes a big chunk of steel to require more than a 3/8 fillet on both sides. Especially if you figure in the effective throat.
