Weld will hold as long as its a good weld. I would reccomend MIG, if your good, it will be stronger than the metal being welded.

If done right, welds are often stronger than the material being welded.

i would replace it but it also depends on how well it will be welded.......it is up to u but it just to me would depend on how good of a weld the person can do for it to.

Also depends on whether you MIG weld TIG weld or ARC weld.

Yep, for a MIG weld it has to be real clean, so clean the heck out of it, makes for a better weld[thumb]
