    When cutting the perches off my 1 Ton 14ff, I gouged the axle tube a little. The deepest part of the gouge is a little less the 1/8" and it curves out to nothing (due to the 4.5" grinder w/ cutoff that I was using. Should I grind it into a bevel (w/o going any deeper) and pass a bead on it, then grind back smooth or what?:doah:

    Yes, grind it neat and then run a nice bead and grind it clean. :)

    Not a big deal, but I would prep it and weld it back flush. Return it to like original condition.

    I did the same thing and forgot to fix two of the little cuts and have never had a problem.
