Arc always leaves a hard zone next to the weld and without normalizing it will remain brittle.

Article is not as much biased as it is accurate. Having o/a welded cast for the last 30 years ,I can assure you that it is more accurate than the rod suppliers trying to peddle their wares.

A lot of advances have been made in cast iron welding in the last 30 years as well. It would be interesting to hear someone like Eutectic Castolins take on cast iron repair with arc welding.

A friend had an old Massey with a water cracked block. I did some searching and came across a product called 'Castaloy' that made the repair really easy. It can be bought in less than a pound quantities and came with the flux. It takes a little more heat than a butane torch, but not much. It was just like soldering and sealed the crack perfectly. It's not intended for repairs to high stress areas but works great on cracks. I did the repair four years ago and no leaks. It was far easier than lacing the block with sintered iron bolts and a lot cheaper than using nickel rod and a lot of heat. I've also used the steelaloy and alumaloy for repairs to other stuff. I found the product on Ebay
