I've been making slow progress, and working on the pieces, cleaning and repairing. I found a hairline crack in one of the doors when I was bead-blasting parts, so I thought I should show the repair. I already showed a picture of this door before in the thread just after I tried some of the Williams stove black. These pictures show what I did to it. I used the same welding method as I used on the door knobs, the cast-iron piston rings and a torch. I ended up with a little pit on the outside, but I don't think it will be noticeable when the knob is installed and it's all covered with stove black. I was able to mimick the texture of the cast iron by heating the repair to red, then quickly tapping on a piece of sandpaper with a small hammer over the repaired area. Jerry

If you hadn't mentioned it, no one would ever notice the weld pit ! Very nice work !!!!!!!

The sand paper texture trick is great. I've done similar on casting braze repairs by using the fine point of an autobody pick hammer. The sand paper trick would have saved me an hour acting like a wood pecker with that hammer ! :D

Some use lamp black, plus graphite, yes.

The girl friends family (and ancestors) sold what was a stove polish recipe from the 1800's. Their stove polish was petroleum jelly and graphite heated and mixed, . . with winter green added to hide the burning petroleum jelly smell. I used it just once. :roll:

I now use Meeco brand, which doesn't smoke, and only smells faintly like school art class water-based poster paints. Holds up just as well as any others I tried so far.

The plater finished the parts so I picked them up today. It's getting closer to being ready to re-assemble! I think he did a fine job. Jerry

This part was broken and I welded it. You can see it in an earlier post when I finished welding it.
