Interesting to see the bump-steer solution in Richard's photos. Are people keeping a watch at the toe of the weld on the taper insert? The arrangement puts a substantially increased bending load into the insert, and if it were to fail you'd imagine it would first show at the toe of weld - combination of heat affected zone and relatively stiff insert meeting plate.
