  1. Cast iron bed crack - options

    Hello there, I’m a newbie in sewing machine world but I’m not in welding world. i don’t know what you have as far as welding equipment but there is a GMAW wire you should seriously consider Crown Alloys 44-30 mig wire It’s not cheap at 70-80 per 2lbs spool, but it’s going to be a more forgiving than any GTAW approach where pre and post heat are critical, and you get a weld that is rather difficult to grind or clean up once your done. I’d still preheat (I bought a used gas bbq just to use as a preheater!) 44-30 can be filed or ground if you want to clean it post weld. I’m also a fan of brazing cast iron, but I haven’t done any of that since I bought a spool of the 44-30. Best of luck Carl
