Mike, I'd recommend taking one of those damaged cog triads and hitting
it with a hammer. You'll quickly find the only thing welding them
together is rust or dirt or anything but actual welding. There's a
splined interface between the cogs but that is it. Feel free to call
service if you don't believe me.
Moral of the story: quit wasting your money!
