Welding is not always the best solution or faster IMO
Welding is not always the best solution or faster IMO. A 1" X 1/16" thick Square Tubing "Yard Pole Hanging Plat Stand" (7 ft high above ground) was dropped off for a repair. The request was that it be welded where it broke at ground level. At that point a 3/8" round finger was welded and went out 6", down 8-10" to keep it from turning. I was tempter to chop-saw the tubing square and clean to simply weld it.
With plenty bolts, nuts, and 1" X 1/8" thick angle I decided to drill and bolt it "All" back together. I have solid steel and thicker angle but d/n want to overkill the repair (since I d/n have 3/4" or 1" rebar). I simply used two 5/16 bolts/washers/nuts to bolt 2 ft of 1" angle at the bottom. 8" is lapped, 16 " will go in the ground with a 6" angle stop bolted at the bottom bolt (to resist twisting). This will allow the son-in-law to know he is qualified to do the next repair. LOL.
Pop Rivets and heavy rivets to brad are even better for some jobs vs welding IMO.
