i didnt read all that ,if you look at the post i just put on , use them old oak pallets, the fin on top of the maytag was broke off, i made a piece of iron to match the other side, got the high grade nickel rod at the welding shop , groved the joint, weld a 1/4 to 1/2 " got my grinder gound it back flush, weld again , same way over and over til you have the crack or seam done , strike the rod to flash over the top of the welded area to give it the cast look , you might need to do that a few time to get the look , then you dont have a big blob that look like its fixed , well i hope this helps , if you dont think it is stong i did the same thing to a piston rod , yea i still wonder about that but it still running , i left the blob look on it ,

You are using the wrong rod and fux bring it to people who do it for a living. We stand behind every piece of cast the we have welded with bronze. Jason

Their videos on #1 and #5 rod for oxy-acetylene or Propane torch repair of aluminum and yes, POT METAL is amazing.
I've wanted to order some for a long time, and finally did today.
