Can Cast Iron be Welded
I'm confused. I have heard from several people that cast iron cannot be welded...and I have read that it can be welded.
If it cannot be welded, can somebody please explain why so that I may better understand. If it is in fact weldable, could you please explain the process since apparently it must be difficult to do. I am not a weldor (obviously), but I can usually get two pieces of metal to stick together, but I haven't tried to weld cast iron. Can it be "welded" to anything other than another piece of cast iron? Can it be stick welded, and if so what would be the recommended rod? Lots of questions. Thanks.
There is no shortage of experts, the trick is knowing which one to listen to!
