If a project is worth doing, it's worth doing right.
After several years of use, the tab I'd welded on finally broke off. When in use,
the force applied by the closer pushes the tab towards the headstock so it's well
braced. But there's still a slight pulling force each time it's cycled, so eventually the
weld fatigued and broke off. (All the brown goop, by the way, is spray-on
open gear lube. It's brown and waxy and makes things look dirty, but it's just lube.)
