There’s no realistic way you’ll be able to repair the crack and have it function properly afterward. It would take a good amount of machining even if you could find someone to braze/weld it (I’ve never personally seen or heard of anyone welding cast iron).

If you can’t get a replacement table/base (which I consider unlikely to happen for any reasonable cost), I’d probably try to part it out and recover your $250 by selling the motor and cutterhead.
