Our stairs need repair.

This is about the worst of them, the wood is rotten and the steel has corroded away.
I found a bit of steel that was a close enough fit and welded it into place, a job that went very poorly until I eventually saw after wiping the old flood mud off the indicator on the welder that my current was set way to low. American's call them stick welders for a very good reason.
Quite a useful tool is a hacksaw. Out comes the old bolt.
I was drilling here for a reason.
This pipe had filled with water from a hole further up that had rusted away, fixing that will be my next stage after I recover energy.
A splash of paint and the old step is temporarily back in place, because the weld embarrassed me so much I made this shot extra small.
