I have a small TS. When I bought it at very low price I had in mind its 14 Amp motor to make DIY tools. Now I have a small 1/2 hp motor that will work well in cutting thin material. I want to use this saw.
It has a cracked part (the part that elevate the arbor) and I want to see if I can weld to repair it. (If not weldable I would use plenty of epoxy. It is not hopeless because it has “ribs” and plenty of surface area for the glue.)
The metal is non-magnetic. It is very common and used in many places. I believe it is similar metal to tables of miter saws, tables of low-priced bench top tools, such as stroll saw and some small band saws. Also the material for low cost pulleys. It likely is cindered and when cracked as a powdered appearance.
It is stronger, less malleable, than aluminum.
I know this is a vague question, but what is the name of this alloy. Can it be welded with ordinary arc (stick welding) or fluxcore wire welding?
