I had a telephone conversation with George last evening. Boy did he ever educate me on cast iron repair! Thank you for the education George! Where I was all wet, I thought you only brazed cast iron with a oxygen acetylene torch. No you actually weld it with cast iron filler rod. George was saying you can even use an old cast iron bath tub for filler, just break off the porcelain.
Here is a picture off of George's website. See the gray square rod? That is the filler rod! Also a can of flux, you do dip the rod in the flux like you would while brazing. Preheat, and a controlled post heat are very important!
Again thank you so very much for the education George! :wink:

We had triangle cast iron rods when I did it in school. I remember you had to be real generous with the flux and dip the hot rod into every few seconds. Molten cast iron is the consistancy of pudding.

Puddles - where do you get those rods? I don't see them for sale anywhere. The ones we used back in the 70's were about 5/16" round, rough finished, kinda had a texture like an old window sash weight, complete with the mold marks. Not an electrode. I guess I forgot about the flux. Too many years ago. . .

George was saying he buys from Tucker Valve Seat, but right now their site is down.

Here is another site I found.
