I would weld it with 7018 and take a chipping hammer between welds tap it all over to releave stress on the cast. I call it ping the metal. Had a lot of good luck with this. If it want weld with 7018 than it not cast steel and the vise is not good material for a vice anyways. Ni rods are not good for stress parts like vices. good luck.
