Usually you pay more money for new fractured rods!

What. . .  the rod? I would think a new rod would be cheaper that paying someone to weld it.

Surely you realize I was just being a "wise-cracker" about the welding.

Sorry. I'm used to being serious. I guess I figure everyone else is too.

I could weld that up easily.

 

After everything is cleaned up, turn the pan upside down and use it as the base and then weld the pieces of the rod together and mount it onto the pan.

Fasten a light socket to the top of the piston and run the electrical wire down thru the rod and thru the pan.

 

Put a nice shade on it and you got yourself a "one of a kind" lamp.
