Nice work on that clutch cover.   The final product turned out great.   Once that cover gets powder coated no one would ever know it was ever broken like that.    I like seeing saws like that being restored and put back together.

Video of welding a Solo clutch cover.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSnqScEAOjY&feature=youtu.be

Very cool

Fixing embed link.

Welding up a busted out clutch cover for an old Solo Twin chainsaw that is destine for a complete restoration with every part powder coated. The part is magnesium, probably die cast and like most cast mag parts, probably a pretty dirty alloy. Using AZ92A filler and a Lincoln Tig 300 welder.

You cannot weld those things up with out a little bit of pitting.

There is no way I could ever get all the pits out, you notice how there are two distinct lines of pits on the outside, one was the heat effected zone of my first pass into the base metal the other was my second pass to blend and help tapper onto the base metal. I do this so there isn't a distinct line where the new material meet the old, hopefully making it stronger in the long term.

If I was painting it I would have tried another couple of passes to fill in the majority of the pits, but since it's going to be powder coated and it was well known it'd need some filler I left it alone with my first pass so I wouldn't have to sand any deeper into the original material to blend everything back in.
