Can you point to your source regarding residual stress always being at yeild in the material? Considering the Mig 25 was predominantly welded together, how come the structure didn't fail upon loading?

I am assuming your statement is true prior to stress relief through heating?

I have seen countless hot rods, kit cars with shortened output shafts welded exactly as I have described. These see predominantly torsion but also very significant bending loads. I am only going by what I have seen. Any ideas?

This stuff is good for two tonnes / 2500 psi. I think I will give this ago.
Thanks Brucey, common sense prevailed in the end :D
