I like doing the plug welds my self and like the Idea of the plug welding it...

But in this case, I think my own personal preference would be to plug weld and then put at least a stitch weld at the front and rear of the skid and maybe a small stitch on the side front middle and back, that will assure it will not come back any time soon...

This outer edge is going to see a lot more abuse than one might think...

A Weld does not need to crack to have the need for premature return for repair it's a piece of state-owned equipment and that could mean the operators to be will not give a crap in how they treat it.

I find most employees/operators do not care, because of the fact, they don't own the piece of equipment...

LOL the mayors brother runs it, and he is one that everything is done right and by the book, I think it runs in the family, any work that I do for them has to be done right and look pretty.

Anything other than the plug weld will cause a crack in this hi-impact/hi-vibration environment.

So by adding the stitch weld (in addition to the plug weld) will still cause
a crack.

Got it done, the tri braze was supposed to be cut with the grain but it broke when I tried to bend it so I pieced it together. I used plug welds with preheat.

Looks good . Must remind the guy to at least mark the way of the grain .On one sample wheel kept failing 1st sample ,Come to find out the steel supplier cut the sheets cross grain . That turned into a pissing contest as we had planned on lighting it up for profit increase later .
