Look at the back of the sink. There's a matching joint going up the wall. Silver soldered over a big gap?

I have one around here somewhere. I probably have a spot on my hand where I poked myself one time. The old General stuff was nice and affordable.

I wouldn't give more than $150 for a 230 Amp AC welder of that category.

I have a Miller Dialarc 250 ($300) and a Lincoln Idealarc 250/250 ($350 w/ long leads). In the mid-1960's, an AC-225...

Sure looks like a Century. The Montgomery Ward Powr-Kraft 230 looks identical. There is a 295 Amp version.

That thing probably sold for $200 (US) new.

Somewhere around here, I think I have a Hmong necklace that was forged from Aluminum. The better ones are coin silver. I got it in a refugee camp 40+ years ago.

It sounds as though you have something like this. I suppose that you could TIG weld the open links to make it stronger.

True wrought iron can be more ductile than steel. Old chains would stretch a bit when approaching their load limit.

These days, people refer to most any bent piece of steel/iron as "wrought iron".

If it's wrought iron, I'd guess the best fix would be to forge weld another piece of wrought iron on there.

My oldest is a 1952 Lincwelder 180 C. The Dialarc is 1974, and might be the second one produced according to the serial number. The Syncrowave and the Idealarc are a bit newer.
