I'll guess that Someone out there wonders why my avatar is a ladder top...
Well, I was given a 10 ft tall Stepladder, that was deemed worthless by the prev owner, BECAUSE......
Some idiot set it down on its side in some corrosive substance that ate through the angle that connected the top step to the A- frame sides!
I took the ladder, & said thanks. (He was glad to be rid of it..). Got it back to my hangar, de-acidified it with baking soda, drilled out what was left of the rivets, and
cut myself, a piece of 1.25" Aluminum angle marked and drilled that, and put it all back together with AN4-4 countersunk Aircraft screws washers and locknuts!
It works like new!,
I then took some photos for posterity.
Now what to do .....?
Yeah That's the ticket ! You guessed it!!
