Re: Replace cotter pins with welding rod

OK... So enlighten me, please....
How is it easier/better/faster? Why a de-masting as example?

Yes. cotter pins are fiddly; but other than a lack of one 'leg' ta fool with, what are the advantages?
From all appearances, it looks ta me like the ends would tuck under, avoiding dreaded cotter pin scrapes
