Well here is another weld job.   The possibilities seem endless.   This is a handle on a Poulan 3700.

Thanks for posting srcarr52 those are some very nice examples.   I have the rod for welding on chain saw bars but have not tried it yet.   I really do not have the equipment for cutting the groove back in them.   I know you made one yourself like a lot of other things that you do.   Nice work.

Thanks!  You're welds makes mine look like chicken scratch and they are getting progressivly worse.  I'm going to have to give my welder a look over and see whats up.  What are you using for a welder, tungston, size, ect?

Having the groove grinder certainly opens up a new world of possibilities.  I buy a lot of bars cheaply because they are 58 gauge and grind them to 63.  Someday when I get a Husky mount Tsumara lightweight I'll have to grind it to 63 on day one since they only come in 58, WTF?

Here is another crack in a clutch cover, for I think a 8500.
I had a lot of trouble with pitting when welding this one.   I think the casting was not very good and seemed to be very porous.

Use a little Sputty on it before painting?

I usually just fill in the pits with JB Weld. 

I know some of you have seen pictures of this before but I wanted all my weld jobs in one place.

This is a Poulan 395 that I could not find a chain brake for so I took the clutch cover and cut the top of it off and then welded in all the holes that were left behind.

Roger, did you end up welding that crack in that thin part of that 272 clutch cover I traded you?  Wondering can that thin be done.
