    how can you properly fix damaged cast aluminum lawn mower decks?
    I posted in the repair forum and got a reply to find a welder who uses a tig. will this repair last?
    i got a chunk missing out of my jd mower in additition to a crack. can any missing material be built back up?

    A good welder can fix almost anything. I had a bearing support in the transaxle of my car blow out and a welder buddy of mine filled in the hole and the machine shop bored a new mounting hole for the bearing. A deck should be no problem for someone with a TIG welder and a good technique.
