Welding caille top casting, help!

Postby jbste » Fri Dec 08, 2017 11:51 am

Has anyone had success with welding and repairing castings? I have a Caille Naked Lady but the top casting has multiple cracks. In the UK the metal is known as Mazak or Monkey Metal. I've seen Muggyweld but don't know anything about it, does it work on this type of metal? Any suggestions how and where I can get the casting welded?

Thanks all

Could you post a pic of the damaged top box as I thought this was aluminium which can be welded by someone whom knows what they are doing?
I don't know of anyone who has successfully welded pot metal?
