Even I will concede: if you must run with a guide wheel - a welded-on one is best. When the weather warms a bit, I mean to practice my welding. If I get good enough in a decent amount of time, I'm welding a bracket on. If I don't think I can do a nigh-perfect weld, I'm going to talk to a mechanic friend. I may still have him do it, just to be safe.

So yeah, if you can weld rather well or can find someone who does, definitely do that. Make sure whoever welds understands the geometry of the situation.
