I picked up a Stanley #5 off e-bay a while back. Examined closely upon recipt and didn’t notice any major flaws at that time. It was rusty and well used but looked like it could be returned to a usable state with a some TLC. Flash forward a couple of weeks I started the cleaning process. After I soaked it in Evapo-Rust I discovered a crack in the body running from the mouth up the side. To late to return it and I just set it aside for now. So I have this #5 body sitting around doing nothing and I am trying to figure out what to do with it…..
Is it feasable to repair this crack? If so what approach? Welding (Mig/Tig?)? Soldering? JB Weld?
