Thanks! The same tech managed to crack the socket again but in a different spot he was trying to extract McGard locks that didn't go more than 1/4" into the socket and hammered the hell out of it til it split. Guess I'll be fixing it again. Maybe I'll add a thick bead around the top to reinforce it.Mail that over here, I'll throw it up against my NitroCat 1250K to see how it holds. That weld looks really nice.
