    I have a 48" w/b and the deck is separated where the top meets the side. This is from years of mowing sand. LOL!
    Anyway what is the best way of fixing this, right now I just have a couple of L brackets holding it together.
    Should I bring it to a metal shop and have it welded, or consider buying a new deck, or just leave the L brackets on it?

    you don't say how badly the top plate is separated, but I would suggest that you have it re-welded. make sure they weld the top plate level or you may always have problems obtaining a nice cut.
