- Frame welders – Aluminium, near Oxford ?
It can be done. However teh final strength of the repair and the metal around the repair relies not just on the skill of the welder but on the type of aluminium that is being welded.
It might need heat treatment afterwards and a proper repair will be expensive. For an iscg tab I personally wouldn’t bother – I’d be looking for a different solutionPosted 6 years agoRusty MacSubscriber

could be a solution if the old tab can’t be fixed.Posted 6 years agoscotsmanMember
If its just one of the three lugs thats broken off, just get the area built up with enough weld so you can drill and retap the hole, get whoever does it to build a fair bit of “meat” around where the new hole will be then file down the shape just to tidy up, reface and chase thread. I had this done a couple of years ago and its still going strong.Posted 6 years ago
