Kevin - I couldn't get the video to work, but even w/o I can certainly get your point & respect it!!! My thoughts on a possible weld for the HWT were exactly why I am glad you put in your post. I think safety is of utmost importance & having others contribute to the whys and why nots of a given question only help the majority. Thank you for taking the time to put in the words of caution to any of us who are non-experienced do it yourselfers.
