Flatter to be fixed


Recommended Posts

Saturday morning after many months of searching I found this old fatter. I paid it just 1€ and the face was quite good but the botttom was badly mushroomed. I started grinding it but I discovered that there is a crack... it doesn't seem too serious anyway.

what should I do? weld the crack and grind it again to close it?

I'd advise not welding around water.....! you should not generate so much heat welding the struck end to effect the working face and the struck end needs no hardening. just stand it on a metal heat sink to weld if you feel you need to but no water.
