Any chance of posting up a picture of a pick modified as described?
Maybe even a link to a picture would be good.

I'm sure kiwijw was using one of those picks for some time, however, the post with a picture may have been deleted.

I have been doing that for some time now as originally I got tired of my picks just wearing out and thought that welding a cold chisel or masonry chisel on the end of it would make the pointy end longer and make it wear less quickly, and also get a second life out of the pick, also had some hard facing put on the tip of my large pick by my boilermaker mate, but even that needs touching up from time to time and have to use a cutting disc to do that.

Could possibly also be able to attach a small trenching machine chain tip to the end of a pick as well, maybe that would last longer.
