they are cast steel, not cast iron, they weld fine with a good chamfer to penetrate well down into the root. I used to always arc weld them as I felt it was a more flexible weld, where as Mig is a very brittle weld. Tig is great, but a bit hard on large shafts. Good root weld though. Check out your weld rod guy to get one for cast steel or even a dissimilar steel rod. Plenty f pre heat and give it some amps. If I had a fiver for everyone I have done as a rabbit or foreigner I'd be worth about 50-00 now  Grin Grin
