Three different professionals have looked at it and said it has defective welding at the base of the joint, I have engineering qualifications too and believe the same however whatever I say will be taken as bias so discount me from the equation.
I personally think two plates half welded is less than ideal, one single thicker plate fully welded would take less effort and give a better result, again this could be taken as bias.
I think your sole purpose was understood by everyone you wanted it fixed for free.
You cant look at a weld at tell it will hold or not. Xraying is the only way.
You are lucky CJ is a true step above because frankly he owes you nothing.
You say your done being nice cause somebody did you wrong, karma will end up biting you in the end. Careful
