Restoration job cast iron

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Restoration job cast iron

Postby xwrench » Thu May 18, 2017 9:25 pm

So I recently acquired this beauty. I haven't had a chance to do a spark test yet but I'm fairly certain it's cast iron. There's a small crack I need to weld up but cast has always been my Achillese' heel. I'd love to hear any suggestions or comments, thanks.

Where is the crack/do you have a picture of the crack?
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.

I'll take a pic of the crack and post it. Meant to do that in the first place.

Here is a pic of the cracked piece. Sorry about it being sideways.

EB,

I sent you a PM. You have a relatively rare swivel base Paramo there. Weighs about 105# as she sits, and is most likely made well before 1950.
