Cast Iron Welding Examples
These studies are based on recent jobs passing through our shop. As you will see from the photographs, some have already been tampered with by inexperienced hands
resulting in a failed repair and ultimately costing more to fully resolve.
Rolls Royce 20/25 Cylinder Head
This is a Rolls Royce 20/25 cylinder head from the 1920's.
Among other problems it had a badly corroded plug thread. Normally I would fit a threaded insert to recover the damage but, in this case the corrosion had gone too far. I had to weld in from both sides to fully plug the hole.
The machining was straightforward and the plug fitted perfectly.
