Looks like you need a little less heat and more brass. It also looks like you didn't keep the flame moving in a circular motion. You can grind out the bad spots and try it again. Other then a few thing I mentioned you did a pretty good job. Just don't be afraid of using lots of brass rod while brazing.

Thanks so much for the advise. This is my first rodeo with heavy casting. I was not circling much. Now that you mention it, circling is important. The memory needed to be jogged a bit. LOL Here is the final finish.

I ground it down feathered the edges and hit it with the needle scaler. With a coat of paint it might fool a few people if they don't look too close.

It looks a lot better after you cleaned it up. Be sure to post a picture of it after you paint it and put it back together. Was the owner alright with the repair you did, or does he still want a replacement? I think your repair will hold up alright. If the part cracks it will be in a different spot.

The picture doesn’t show it but I did leave it slightly raised. I haven’t talked to the owner. I’ll show him the casting after a paint job and let him decide what to do. Finding a good unbroken casting that someone wants to let go of will be very hard to do. I have a hunch an unbroken casting will have small cracks starting unless it’s a NOS part. The casting is only 1/2” thick in the area that tends to crack.

One coat of epoxy primer and one coat of
power red. Couldn't readily find flambeu in
a good quality paint. Will have to wait for
it to dry to see if there is a difference.

A coat of paint will cover a multitude of sins.
The only way to tell there was a repair made on the bolster, is that the repaired portion is smoother than the rest of the casting. Now you can add this to your résumé of skills.

It's put together now. The heating shrank it a bit. I had to use a sanding wheel to ream it to get the bolster to come down on the front end without pounding on it. I figured putting it together extra tight is inviting another crack to start. Thanks so much for the encouragement and advice. Next time I will use less heat, more rod and do the swirling. There's nothing as good experience.
