Welding cast iron can be done. It’s not ideal but as a farmer who has to make repairs on equipment often, it has had to be done many times.

The problem with cast is, that the heat can cause it to warp. So, even if it’s welded, there would be more work to make sure that it’s aligned correctly.

As Loren said, price a base. Girzzly has a very large stock of parts for old equipment. As long as the motor is good and the head is in good condition, the $250 is definitely worth it for just those 2.

Btw, congratulations on the new to you planer.
