    I have stitched up cast iron & steel. I have the recommended welding rod, and torch for pre/post heat. I will likely have the week between Christmas & New Year's off from my regular job.

    Thanks Mike...I just picked up a used, single piece aluminum bell that I think is going to work. Save some weight and no open bottom with the reverse inside out bolts etc....if it doesn't work I may come back to repairing this one...
