    G*d I hope not! Welding/straightning cranks I understand is bad, but not decks.

    law or not. weld it up because it's much more dangerous NOT welded.

    I think that falls under the ATF's jurisdiction. You might want to check with them before attempting any repairs.:blob2:
    But don't say anything about those funny looking plants your growing in the spare bedroom.

    With the number of deck welds I've got on some of my machines - I'd better just go turn myself in. I'm sure they'll give me the chair.
