When you go to "Advanced" Reply it is towards the bottom of the page. DD's instructions work like a charm.

I'll learn to live with it...



Here is another easy way.
Go to this link.


http://photoposting.is-great.net/?i=1


Click "Select".
This will pull up your "Desktop" on your computer.


Now that you are in your Desktop, just find your picture and click on it. It will highlight.
Now click "Open" at the bottom of the page.


Now just copy and paste the CODE into your reply like the directions say.


This is really pretty easy.

That will be a cool gate. I like it.



Cannot tell you much on welding steel to cast iron. But clear coat would be a good idea for preservation. Get some good quality clear for automotive applications. Like Nason and such and spray it with a compressor and Gun.. Not the cheap aerosol spray cans from the Hardware Stores. The spray can stuff will yellow and not stay on well in my experience.

Ah yes, my apologies, and a crucial error, scroll down and click on go advanced. Then follow my instructions,

Sorry.

While it can be welded, IME brazing is the usual method of choice for repairing cast iron and joining it to other things. I've seen flux-coated rods in the hardware store, but can't remember if they're for OA torches or stick welders.

I tried it today. Heated the cast iron a semi glowing red, then tried immediately to weld it using the highest voltage my welder can supply.


The welds look just okay.
I have no idea of penetration.
It is holding for the moment.


I will try it.
If it fails, I will try an option that I came up with.


Thanks for the recommendations.
