    OW! You are right. That does look like it is cast. An epoxy might work so might the JB Weld. I have used epoxy before and I know it can be painted too to hide the break. I have a friend that is a welder and he has told me in the past that cast metal is difficult to weld but it is possible. You would have to have a good experienced welder to do it if you decided to go that route. That being said, I think I might try something other than welding it then. Good luck to you.

    Grant, I've heard the same thing about welding cast iron. It's a frequent topic of discussion when dealing with broken hand planes The consensus is that it's beyond the skill of most welders and it's as likely to permanently screw things up as it is to help. Some have had luck brazing it but even that isn't certain to work.

    I have obviously goofed and misstated what was I needing.

    I have all the bag stuff for all the others. What I was looking for was ideas for my own bag. I have decided to put together my own stuff to put into a bag specifically labeled with my name ~ there are about 5 other bags with names on them already. I'm thinking about a pack of machine needles maybe with the strange pincushion I found or with the box of class 15 & 66 bobbins that I picked up. It is all yard sale stuff so it fits the parameters of the gift bag requirements.

    Sorry if I confused anyone and thanks for your responses to those who responded.

    you are giving yourself a bag? Fat quarters, machine needles thread, never enough rippers, bobbins are good - small scissors, gift card or is it suppose to be strange? I can't think of anything you could go buy at the store that would be strange though...

    volentold???

    Voluntold means you're both volunteered and told at the same time about a task, sometimes unpleasant ones, and you have zero input into the decision nor can you decline the "honor". It happens frequently in small committees because you might be the ideal person for the crap assignment in others' eyes.

    Nuff splaining, Lucy???

    Same here. It usually sucks, too.

    Chris, your bag of goodies sounds good too. At least you will have the things you need and will use.
    Have fun at the bag party.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Oh yeah - that's Herself's MO all over. Saying no is guaranteed to be more painful than whatever the task I've just been voluntold for
