Its truly a wonder how some of these things hold together. The sad fact is it puts other people at risk. I always get a laugh when some one brings me a "repair" that I could have made better with popsicle sticks and Saran Wrap
I have a new price schedule for repairing repairs and it starts at $50 minimum and goes up from there and it scares people off but its my way of saying I don't want to fix it. I guess there have always been hack and tack "weldors" around but I sure see alot of crap work these days. Nobody wants to pay for quality anymore.
