WOW a real GENIUS has spoken
I guess the 36″ CAST IRON Strom line I welded over 20 years go should have been replaced because of a split.
YUP I must own stock in the welding rod manufacturer (union carbide)
The Black and White I used to repair radiators are still in service 26+ years of continuing service BUT of course these 37 section CEILING rads should be taken down from a land mark building as wall HTG said it wont last.
Amazing no formal education in heating or welding or plumbing and this guy gives advice.
A properly welded joint will out last the base metal.
