    I have a Kubota zero turn mower with a similar issue. Tab that the deck mounts to the frame broke off. Looks like the robotic welder missed the target by over 1/8”. Was covered under warranty but still a PITA.

    A friend rented a Kubota backhoe. He was digging rocks out of his field, discovered a telephone pole that had been cut down 1' from the ground. It was old & pretty rotten. Telephone poles, unlike power poles are usually only 20' tall. Rather than dig it out, I suggested chaining to it.

    He went off to get a chain, I came up with the idea to hook a tooth in the outer softer rotten wood. As I lifted on it something went whizzing past my ear. Where the crowd cylinder pinned to the dipper, the end of the dipper broke & sent half the welded in place bushing. The velocity when it flew past me was sufficient to make me glad it was a miss, not a hit.

    Closer inspection, it was a cold weld where the bushing was MIG welded to the 1/4" plate of the upper end of the dipper stick. Weld just separated from the plate.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Ok burnt oak barrel extract JB is good too.
    I like JB weld for repair work you see the JB weld and know it it going to be a great pay day.

    The JB weld is not a replacement for a good weld. But for a welder great for replacing JB weld

    That looks more like failure due to abuse than a weld failure….

    Was working on a milling machine(programming a VFD speed control) at my friends welding shop today and saw this. It looks like the pre welded parts on the thumb pivot bracket have cracked on the bottom and around the pivot.

    Don't know if I'll get back soon enough to see the finished job. This is his bread and butter, and he'll have it done pretty quick. Its a New Holland excavator owned by a local electrician. Its not a huge machine, but it looks pretty stout.

    Yeah, it didn't seem all that terrifying at the time, but flying past my ear at high velocity, you are right, might have gone differently. Truth be known, I didn't dodge it, there wasn't time to dodge it. I just was lucky.

    Been there, done that. Even the identical machine.

    I carried a sculpture outside as soon as I set the gun down plus I wear ear protection so couldn't hear it.

    Ok you win. I didn’t see it. That’s one of the bad things about wearing ear plugs is you can’t hear the wire feeder going. I’ve been running trigger hold/lock lately and it’s real easy to do that when resting the torch over my leg or it hits the saw horse

    You should probably put a dime there for reference. At first glance it doesn’t look that bad, it looks like the tube bevel. At second glance that is a huge gap and it is centered.
