To increase the pan size, has anyone tried, done it, or besides me, considered spot welding material to the pan to increase it's size? Have always thought about it just never done anything to it. Thoughts?

Keep in mind where you want the foot to be at the time the trap fires. A larger pan could have the animals foot ontop of the jaw at the same time the pan is depressed.

i would worry about the jaw "springing" big footed animals out, like beaver and such, but for fox trapping yes i definitetly have thought about it, but i don't weld, so thats why i haven't tried it.
