    Default Wanted: cast iron bar

    Hi everyone, I have a repair to make to a casting and ideally I would like to use continuous cast iron, but I can't find anyone that sells it in square section. I'll buy round if I need to but it would be a big waste.

    I need 125 X 25 X 25

    Happy to pay and cover postage.

    Thanks for looking.

    If quality doesn't need to be of the highest order, old sash window weights were cast iron.
    I've made engine valve guides out of them.

    Hi Ralph, I reckon there's some in the shed about that size or maybe a bit more.
    Send me a PM with your address please.
