I am working on repairing a cast steel hand wheel. I am having trouble with cracks forming right thru the center of some of the welds directly after the repair prodedure. I am preheating and postheating the repair areas. I am using the TIG process with a mild steel filler rod. I can switch processes if necessary and don't have a way of heating the whole part for the pre and post heat procedures. Does anyone have any suggestions on different materials, processes or proceedures? I am not a welder by trade.
Thanks for your time !!
