  • Cast Iron to Mild Steel

    Hello,

    I need to weld some cast deco peices to mild steel plate.
    I am not so experienced with stick welding, I do have some 7018 rods I think will work for this. Anything to look out for?

    Thanks,

    Yes everyrhing cast is not the easyiest to weld and this will not work the way described. You need to keep cast iron hot after tbe weld and disapate the heat slowly to prevent cracking of the weld so with what you posted I really dont think your experianced enough to make the welds no offense but it isnt a simple welding job.

      Not saying it can't be done with 7018 but there are better choices of rods just for that application and even mig wire...Bob
