    This is the rod i like for stick welding. It doesn't need much pre heat and makes a nice soft weld that can be machined. Its about 25 bucks for a tube of it at my LWS...Bob

    Thanks for the info on the rods. I will give them a time. I am looking into doing both cast iron and aluminum. There is a need in the area and no one else is doing this to my knowledge.
    Thanks,Willy T

    welcome to the site.
    what options do you have to do the repair with ?? TIG/Stick/MIG/OA???? and what skill level are you working at ?? 1/2 year welding experience with MIG only or 20 years in a nuck plant with TIG and every thing else ??

    not trying to be a jerk, just looking for a little info to help the guys that do this all the time have a better idea as to what would be the best response for ya. after all there is more than one way to skin a cat if ya have the right tools, some are better than others. the more info you give, the more likely you are to get more responses. good to know your options.
    thanks for the help
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat.

    Well I don't have a tig set up yet. I have stick,mig and oa. I have been welding fulltime for 5+ years and here and there when needed before that. I'm very good at at both stick and mig and good at oa don't get much practice at it.
    I have not tried welding heads or blocks before so anything you can send my way would be excellent.

    Thanks for the welcome, looks like a great site!
