    Default Mower Deck Repair

    After I removed the bubbled paint you could see that the mower deck rusted away near the front support bracket. I'm not sure this applies here but in the past I have seen metal rust faster in high stress areas. I used a cut off wheel to remove the weld that attached the bracket to the rusted mower deck and to cut a slot to make room for my patch. I MIG welded the patch.

    Hi
    I know it is not structural but that is a bit of spatter you got there.
    May be your machine needs adjustment.

    I welded a little bead of spatter on the end of the contact tip.
    When I removed it I think that I bent and distorted the tip so that it didn't feed the wire properly. I believe that this caused the excessive spatter. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I will replace the contact tip.

    Thanks, Attached are some pictures of last night's project.

    The rod is .1516" OD, had a .001" OD tolerance and was 2.125" long.
    I like to use the drill chuck on the cross slide for fine work like this because I can dial it in by using the knurled nut on the QD tool post for up and down the cross slide for side to side and the compound rest for the angle.
