I had the same problem on a compressor a guy didnt need any more. I poked around the rust area with a sharp heavy awl and poked out the rusted area. I welded it back up and it was a good solid weld. It was just that one area that rusted through. I gave it to someone that wanted a compressor and he has had it in service for about 7 years now with no problems. If its too far gone you will notice that what you weld it up it will just keep burning through around the edges.
