    Uh Oh, 260B pin boss broke off.

    I was moving some gravel around to fill some holes in the drive after the record rainfall amount we had in February. On my last trip, I saw this lying on the ground.

    Uh oh. I knew from the color what it came off of. After crawling around in the dark with a light, I found the spot.

    It looked like it had only been spot welded on. After a few minutes the next day with the wire welder and paint can, we were back in business.

    I'm very thankful that it didn't pop off somewhere in the woods or deep mud. Has anyone else had a problem with this on the 260B?

    I wonder if they forgot to weld it? It would seem to me that it should have had more than a couple tacks

    That must have been built on a Monday or Friday and forgot to finish the weld. I just went and looked at mine and it has a complete weld.

    Those were my thoughts too. Everything else was welded solid.

    I have had to design quite a few welding fixtures for production.
    These can be a real pain in the butt because often you have to accommodate the weld pulling in a direction as it cools and compensate for that.
    Spotting everything in position is desirable because it allows better manipulation for the welder to position his gun and it reduces spatter build up on the fixture components.
    Clamp individual parts in fixture, spot weld, remove from fixture and then produce weld to drawing.
    Happens to us occasionally, welder neglects to weld complete.

    Pretty good looking weld there Dr Kubar. A rounded piece of steel welded to a flat piece of steel is not the easiest to do.

    Having been to the supplier or at least the one a couple of years ago they set everything up in a fixture (tacked) and then it went to an automated weld fixture. If they are still doing them there they must have had a stop and didn’t check well when they restarted.

    Thanks Gizmo. Really, you're being too kind. My normal welds look like someone smeared snot on it and let it dry.

    I'm just happy when it holds.

    I spoke the truth in my statement, they do look pretty good. We are tractor guys, not welders.
    And just so you know, nobody and I mean nobody shows pictures of their bad welds.
