NCWayne, What I posted worked for me. I have a 24"bucket on a Case 580 that has the corner of the bucket built up with hard face and I see no cracks. Kind of a triangular area. The welds butt against each other. A one pass build up. To have sharp hard teeth the best repair would be to replace the teeth.
I have a 36" bucked on a Bantam that I can't weld on near the teeth unless I preheat to 400 degrees and maintain the heat while welding. I want to put a cross hatch pattern there with a little hard face.
