    wouldn't it be safer to weld a piece of metal to the screw driver before welding? in my experience holding something in pliers then grinding it can lead to flying metal.

    Yes that is always the best idea. Although it is a flat piece and the grinding was done down and away from the edge. Not up and into the edge. We were on time constraints and we wanted each piece photographed before there were welded to show steps in pieces along the way. Thank you for your input. Greg
