Weldinga skillet?

  1. I have a 14" number 12 cast iron skillet that got knocked off the counter and a chunk broke off. I've seen a video of one being repaired, but other people say you can't weld cast iron. Any of you guys have any success welding a skillet? I have a 110 wire-feed welder. It's my favorite pan, so I would love to fix it.

    Have you tried JB weld?

    I put my driveshaft together with this stuff.

    I don't know if it would stand up to the heat though.

    My sister looked at this pan for me and said it looked like it was braised. The price was right and I wanted it for the fire so I told her to buy it for me.


    How it looked when I got it.


    How it looked when I took it out of my gas grill for cleaning.


    Took it to a professional welder.


    After seasoning, the nickel weld looked much lighter in color than the cast iron but now it is all the same color. I think I paid $50.
