Bronze place marker repaired

We do quite a bit of work for a local cemetery, from working on their trailers to mowers.  This is a bronze place marker for one of the graves.  While mowing the lawns they drive over these place markers and eventually break off the bolt attachment.

all threads welded back on bronze place marker

Typically the heat from the welding would discolor the top side.  We remedy that by using several wet rags as a heat sink and put small stitch welds a little at a time on each all thread in rotation.

We used an aluminum bronze welding wire .035 diameter and straight Argon as the shielding gas.

Bronze Casting Welding

Recently I welded several Tee Marker Signs at a local Municipal Golf course.  Their challenge was they believed the bronze tee marker signs were being stolen.

The signs were made from a bronze casting and were very expensive to replace.

Bronze cannot be welded with steel welding wire, thankfully I had the appropriate wire.

I drove around the course and welded every sign.   No, I did not get hit by any golf balls.
