Oh Drew. That is just too much. :] I guess that's one way to look at it.

Is the weather up north starting to switch to spring?

Well you have a few options Here. You can replace with new or used one.

Which still isnt going create an issue as your nuts and studs the nuts are really rusty and would most likely snapped if removed.

So what I did was clean the threads up with a tap. M6 x 1.0. Then place washers over the rusted bolt.l with one washer to tighten down with a new nut.

Cleaned it up and painted with high temp paint.

Tetanus 1 needed a patch on the frame. This is what the bottom and inside rail looked like.

So I cut the bottom out and descaler the inside. No picture descaled it seem. As you can see this spot wasnt a complete disaster.

Then welded the plates in the inside and sealed the frame back up. It also looks like I didnt take a photo of other side of the frame rail. I did this a week or so ago. Over a weekend.

Yes Brillo broke down and bought a plasma cutter. I should have bought one a few years ago as they really do speed up cutting steel. So much less damage then torches and loving every minute of using it.

Been wanting one of these, what brand/model did you get? Have you tested it to see if it really can cut the advertised thickness?

I am only on 110v at the moment that will cut up to 1/8 think. I dont have any 5/8 to try let. Being I just got it last week. It's going to take me time to give an honest review. This is a 110 / 240 volt cutter. So I pleased with it thus far. The cart it's on has crappy wheels on it . This one is a Titanium 110/240 plasma cutter from harbor freight. Being I dont weld commercially and use it on occasion. I believe it will suit my needs. On 110 it will go 15 to 16 amp. I doubt it let you goto 30 amp. On 220 it will go to 45 amps. So you can cut anything on a 4 runner with a 115v plug...;)

Cool, let us know how it works out. I've heard that the advertised rated cut thickness may not live up to real world scenarios, not specific to Harbor Freight machines just all in General.

Well it just saved my a pile of time. I changed the rear control arms in the rear and a bolt w as seized. So on 15 Amps and on 110. It melted the nut off. Then I sliced the bolt off about 1/4 from flush and ground it a little. It all fell apart and didnt melt the bushing out of the control arm like a torch would. Nor did it melt my bracket any..
