    Cast iron is difficult, but not impossible, to weld. In most cases, welding on cast iron involves repairs to castings, not joining casting to other members. The repairs may be made in the foundry where the castings are produced, or may be made to repair casting defects that are discovered after the part is machined. Mis-machined cast iron parts may require repair welding, such as when holes are drilled in the wrong location. Frequently, broken cast iron parts are repaired by welding. Broken cast iron parts are not unusual, given the brittle nature of most cast iron.

    While there are a variety of types of cast iron, the most common is gray cast iron, and these guidelines are directed toward this type of material.

    Welding sheet metal panels, like any welding application, requires proper technique and equipment. While TIG welding is known as a more a precise procedure, it also requires a more advanced level of skill. When welding thinner metals, such as sheet metal panels, the main objective is to achieve optimal penetration while avoiding warping and burn through, and delivering a quality weld with a clean appearance.

    The proper MIG welding tips and techniques for novice welders or individuals looking to occasionally weld are listed below to help anyone achieve a high level of success in collision and auto repair applications.
