Taking the Right Step

Today was a stair day. The team went down to the local steps that climb from one neighbourhood to the next, with over 300 steps in all, to clean them up. I ended up welding a broken step in the base that had cracked, using a borrowed welder and a lot of luck. It has been a long time since I last welded and getting it right was not as easy as I first hoped. In the end, with a few practices we ended up with a workable and not-too-shabby solution.
