I see pictures on the web of people straddling the pinch weld with their jackstands. See picture. This would be a convenient place for me but I've always been afraid it would bend the pinch weld. The throat of my jackstands is shallower than the one shown and would probably press on the weld.

Any opinions on this?

How about using one of those rubber hockey-puck style jack pad adapters between the jack stand and the pinch weld? They come in different sizes and would spread out the lifting force to a wider area and lessen the chance for damage.
