He did say it should help. But you never know - the Op could be a new hobby welder and isn't sure what went wrong. Or- the exact opposite- was trying to bang it out quick and dirty.

(I, for one, have no clue what I'm looking at from a weld perspective- but, the idea makes a lot of sense.

I looked at doing it and it is still on my mod list; but I am having trouble finding a Saturn jack. The jack has to be short and most that I have found so far are too tall.

I like the strengthener as I have been looking at the flex when a person is on the steps and it is the floor that moves the most.

What can I say in my defence, it's hard to do oxy/acet and not get them to go together while molten, if I new there would be a test I might have been fussier about the cosmetics by the way they do work fine and are still together.

Oxy-acetylene welding is an art and takes practice. I would rather oa weld than mig, but oa welding heats up a much larger area than mig or arc and is not nearly as fast.

I re-examined the pics Herk, and those will not work on our trailers due to ours being in a cutout just barely wide enough for the steps and the bolts are on the inside of the steps that come down from the floor.

I certainly hope I didn't come across rude- all welding is a terrifying art to me. I'm a sissy and don't even like grinders! If it does what you need- you're all good!
