Build 4991 powered welder not being recognized

Trying to install a new wheel on a quadbike with a fully charged welder and it won’t let me because it doesn’t recognize the welder being fully charged for some reason. Activating the welder allows me to repair items and cauterize but that’s it.

That’s been an issue for awhile now.

My solution has been to carry around duct tape. My guess is that the code has been altered in some manner that makes duct tape required to activate the process. You can choose which component to use so you don’t waste the duct tape. was supposed to fix it

Does the welder have a “seeing this is a bug” on the bottom of the description?

Yes it does. I’m on version 4997.

I’m new to playing experimental versions. Did the acetylene torch get removed from working at some point also?
