    Wow. What a pompous arrogant thing to add. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything . Maybe he doesn't have a pocket full of money to buy the new part. He's just asking for opinions and yours doesn't count. Why don't you buy one for him? It's the Obama thing to do and you're obviously in that camp!

    Pre-heat the link in the kitchen oven to 550F and braze it together with oxy-acetylene . Then reheat to 550F and slow cool in oven.
    Shot peening the link afterwards will reduce inherent stresses.

    Personally I would take this to a local fab/welding shop and see what they can do to fab a part - getting a quote on the phone vs a local guy that takes pride in his work - he sees it as a challenge and also opportunity - I can see maybe $150-200 range to cut and weld up a new link.

    That would work pretty good-- if it was an old pump handle for decoration.

    What about groove out joint, 550 in oven, weld with cast rod from tsc, after every pass, back in oven at 550 for 15 minutes, keep going until joint is filled (probably 6 passes per side), grind flush, weld 3/8 fish plate 4" past joint oneach side (8" total length), back in oven at 550 then step down 100 deg wvery 15 minutes until down to 200, then shut off oven, leave closwd to hold heat as long as possible. Pull out next day, put back on and good to go. Any pro's out there think that'll work? I've got the buzzbox and an old oven.

    The part is likely cast steel, not cast iron. I wouldn't try to use cast iron rod on that.

    Replace cast rod with 7018. I'll probably try it this weekend if it quits raining. Worst case scenario it won't hold. Not gonna be any more broke than it is now. lol.

    Well, I decided to give it a shot. Took three passes per side, using an old propane grill to heat and cool. Here's a shot of one of the plates I welded on. The other side has one on it as well. Tomorrow I'll clean off the slag (left it on to slow cooling, etc.) and shoot some primer on it and throw it back on.

    You too. If someone's answer doesn't meet your approval it's unwanted? It's the Internet - you don't get to moderate everyone's responses. You don't like it - too bad.
