Thanks all. I think I will sandblast it to get a better look first. If it is a bad casting it should be OK to just grind the extra flash off and paint it? I don't think it is worth doing the welding...

This plus 4 sound stage speakers hanging from the ceiling. It stays on 24/7! Best thing is NO commercials. I don't think I will keep renewing for long though, the price keeps going up.:(
