    Default Large metal eagle with swastika

    Well not so large actually 20x25 cm:s. Picked up in Rovaniemi Northern Finland in 1944 by a Finnish vet. Is it worth 60 euros.... more?

    WELDING OF CAST IRON Cast iron is an extremely versatile material, used in thousands of industrial products. It is hard, wear-resistant, and relatively inexpensive. Like steel, it is available in many different grades and compositions. While we usually think of cast iron as being brittle (having low ductility), this is not true of all cast irons, as we shall see shortly. Cast iron, like steel, is an iron-carbon alloy. In composition and structure, and in some of its properties, it is quite different from steel. While many grades of cast iron can be welded successfully, not all cast iron is weldable, and welding of any cast iron presents problems not usually encountered in the welding of steel. Composition and Grades of Cast Iron Cast iron is by no means pure iron. In fact, there is less iron in any grade of cast iron than there is in a low-carbon steel, which may be 98% iron. Almost every cast iron contains well over 2.0% carbon; some contain as much as 4.0% . In addition, cast iron usually contains 1.2 to 2.5% silicon, 0.5 to 0.8% manganese, and (as in steel) small percentages of sulphur and phosphorous. It is the high percentage of carbon that make cast iron different from steel in many of its properties. In a finished steel, all the carbon is combined with iron in the form of iron carbides, whether those carbides are in grains of pearlite, in grains of cementite, or in scattered small particles of carbide. In cast iron, most of the carbon is usually present in uncombined form, as graphite. (Graphite is one of the two crystalline forms of carbon; diamond is the other). The differences between the general types of cast iron most widely used arise chiefly from the form which the graphite assumes in the finished iron

    I can not weld cast iron but I know some can.
    Anyway as I said there is also an other way of restauring as it shows on thise 19th century garden vase; the light grey parts ( a major party on the front and a dent at the back/left)where filled in with epoxy car-body repair. After the paint job it looks quiet good.
