Yesterday, I was at the old man's house and he asked me to try to repair the table on his drill press. The collar that clamps around the upright post of the drill press has the clamp tab broken off on one side. I know the part is cast, but not sure if it's cast iron or cast steel. It's an older Craftsman unit, so I'm assuming probably cast iron, but how do I figure out for sure? Secondly, any recommendations on procedure, electrode etc, considering that I have only an AC stick welder with max output of 140 amps? Thanks in advance guys.
