    54" Blade Angle Cylinder Mounting Bracket Repair

    Thinking about drilling a 1/2" hole in a peice of 1/4" plate and welding it over the tear. Any better ideas?

    Sounds like a good plan to me, although I don't have a blade so I don't really know where this plate fits in the big picture.

    I replaced the pins mine came with with hardened bolts and tapered lock nuts to try to minimize that. You may have to do that anyway when you plate the top. One of those 2 pins was short but I can't remember which one. Anything 1/4 or better should fix you right up.

    I appreciate everyone's input. Pretty sure it will last until it breaks.

    Nice repair. Mine usually last till something else breaks. Which usually coincides with a particular individual using it again....
