Cast Iron Repair - What Is It
And How Does It Work
Cast iron repair, the process of repairing faults in cast iron


Cast iron is formed by pouring molten iron into a cast of the finished item. Once the iron is solidified, the cast is removed and the iron retains the shape of the cast.

Because of this process of manufacture and the qualities of cast iron, cast iron repair is very difficult.

There are two main options:

Fusion Welding

Fusion welding is a skill that can take years to master. It requires the actual melting and puddling of base metal as the filler material is added.

Fusion welding is used primarily on dense castings that can be machined after the welding is done.

Cylinder heads are excellent subjects for fusion welding.

When done well, cast iron repair, and the subsequent tidying up, will be invisible to the eye and will easily retain the strength of the original cast iron.

Metal Stitching

Metal stitching describes the process of repairing cracks in cast metals without welding. It uses simple metal stitches to repair the metal.

Primarily because of the need for an alternative to the difficulties encountered in welding, metal stitching was pioneered.

The main component of metal stitching is the stitching pin.

These pins have evolved over many years from simple threaded bolts through tapered pins to the highly sophisticated threaded fasteners available today.
