The posts here and other forums about worn/elongated/misshapen holes in deck mounts reminded me of a question:
I used to have a stock of carbon rods in various diameters that were used to fix those types of problems.

Just insert the correct size rod in the hole, weld up the worn area, knock out the carbon and grind for appearance.
That resulted in a near perfect new hole.

But, I've used all them up and can't find a new source. The only thing available, at least so far, is square or rectangular shapes used to build up edges on flat stock or allow welding up to the edge without a recess forming.

Anyone know where these might be available?

non alkaline c and d batteries. (from Dollartree or similar)
A C battery has about a 1/4" carbon rod at the core, a d has about 3/8"

I find it easiest to cut off the positive end of the battery on a bandsaw and slide the whole works out.

(I use the carbon rods in my homebrew carbon arc torch)
