Stoody has a guidebook for crushing, grinding and screening. I'm looking at it and it is quite informative. To tell if it's manganese, use a pocket magnet. Manganese is non magnetic. It may have a very weak magnetic pull if it's work hardened but steel will have a strong magnetic pull. Don't let it get above 500 deg's. There may be more info on the net to help you.

Hey Stick welding, I think you put me on to something. The plate was magnetic. Then I bumped it with a 4 1/2" grinder with a cutoff wheel. Produced a really long orange spark stream with vivid bombbursts. I think this is cast low-to medium carbon steel! The spark stream from a 6" I-beam, that happened to be next to the plate produced a similar spark stream. The funny thing is I took the magnet to the cheek plates and the were nearly non-magnetic ... probably those do have a high manganese content. Based on these findings I think I'll run a test bead with plain jane 6011 and if it looks good I'll proceed with a buildup. Thanks!

I wouldn't use 6011. Try some of the hardfacing on a scrap piece to set your heat. If it looks good then try a little on your plate.

Yeah, maybe I'll get something from the Lincoln Wearshield BU family, that seems like it would be about right.
