    So, what type of brazing? Keep in mind, this is going to be hanging on the wall, and used.

  13. Cast Iron repair

    So, I've got a old antique candle holder that broke. It is cast iron, from what I can tell. I've been looking around trying to figure out how to repair cast iron. It seems there are two options for me; #1 Castaloy. #2 Welding. Of the two, Castaloy seems the easiest. I've never welded, but we do have a welding shop in town. And with my forge (being able to heat the cast iron up to 1500+) , I'm pretty sure I could get it welded. Of the two, which one seems to be the strongest, and most reliable method. Also, which method have you done? I'm really nerves about this one, It is an antiques, from my family. So a family heirloom. And I don't want to mess it up even more. Thanks guys! 1776
  14. Hey, I found a harbor freight 55 lbs. anvil , new at the store, for $55. Made by Central Forge. Is it worth buying?
