Looks a little better than the one I did earlier this week.

I would bet its paper thin where it’s broken and you would be better off putting in some “new” steel

Went and had a closer look. It's still minimum 3/16 where its broken out. I think if it's welded well it should have a reasonable lifespan yet. Thoughts? I'll also check and see what a new one is worth.

I'd just weld it up.

Its done. Took 5 hours including lunch. I asked her to pressure wash it before bringing it over and she did. 5lb of 5/32 7018 into it. More stick than I've burned... ever.

It went pretty much like I expected. Bent the bottom plate back into shape so it wasn't under a bunch of stress after welding. Pulled the side in and bottom up with porta power, welded up the corner. I put a lot of weld into that corner to tie everything together. I told them if it starts to crack again beside the welds I'll weld straps across - but be sure to get it to me before its almost in three pieces again.

If you're just going to patch it like that I would then take and fit another 1/4" plate to either the top or bottom and weld it in... then plug weld it down the center... then it should last you a while.

From what I can see where it will fracture again next to the held on either side.
it's just inevitable.

I agree it probably will. New bucket is 1250. If it starts to crack again I can add more steel or she can buy a new one. We'll see how long it lasts.

I have done enough farm repair to know you did the right thing. You say your piece, and recommend a repair plan, and then do exactly what they want.

When it comes back again, they will want it done the way you suggested.
