    I do a lot of ss work for the Wendy's resturants near me and its all thin gauged stuff.i use .23 or .30 wire.. also a lot of the welds tend to break a year or so later and I just go back and re teck them.ss is nice but it'sbrittle and does crack a lot on stuff that is slammed around being cleaned and opened and closed all the time.

    He could always shorten the pull of the drawer by an inch with a block welded or riveted in. It might last longer.-Meltedmetal

    My point was that we need more info before we can give him the best advice.

    But he gave us a picture
    You are right and the bad part is all of the tacks/weld are on the outside of the corner. Which over time and pulling/slamming the drawer out to the stops it will just break off again...Bob

    the stuff could be paper thin or maybe 1/8th inch... as it stands.. we have no way of knowing..

    BTW... .023 308 SS is readily available..

    I picked up a side job from work about fixing a drawer for them. I am a welding student looking for practice so this is good. It is a ss drawer that pulls out and it is supposed to have a back plate stop so the wheel stops at that point. I'm going to have to cut out about a 3/4" or 1" piece of ss and weld it on the end. Problem is it being so thin (16/18 gauge) I would like some opinions on what type of wire I'd need. .023 .030 .035? Click image for larger version
