TIG Welding Nickel Rod Cast Iron Repair Cast Iron Skillet. Cast iron can be tricky to repair because it's prone to cracking. Follow along as I repair a broken cast iron skillet handle using specialty welding rods with TIG. I also show you 5 ways to determine if your part is cast iron or cast steel. This repair method uses a preheat and a cool down. For this repair I used Muggy Weld #77 welding electrodes for it's excellent crack resistance properties.
After the repair was made, I wanted to see just how strong a piece of welded cast iron really is, so I clamped the handle to the workbench and began stacking weight on the skillet until eventually the weld failed! Wait until you see the results!
This is just a demonstration. Nickel is a carcinogen. I would not weld anything with nickel that you ingest. I chose to weld this skillet to eliminate any accusations that this is made from anything other than cast iron.

If nothing else Brandon, you made a great ad for Lodge Cast Iron, with all the abuse you subjected that pan to. That was an impressive repair. What welding rod would you use for a pan that is non-toxic?
Crazy how strong it was! I would probably go with a 309L or even regular steel mig wire if it would weld without cracking. I didn't try it with this, but I have welded cast with mig and had good results. Might be an interesting test?
Hey buddy, another good way to practice and a very practical test is grab a part of an ol' brokedown piece of equipment and try to cook the oil out, weld and test. Very rarely do get a new clean part to weld. Good job your gettin better with every vid.
