I bring home the tag ends of filler wire from work that the shop trashes . we weld all kinds of material so I have various carbon, chrome, stainless fillers. I was wondering what problems/dangers I should worry about if I use high alloy filler on carbon steel.
The things I do at home are repairing a plow or mower, or building some sort of rack or repairing/building a trailor. Something that might see some high stress or impacts, but see no pressure as in a pressure vessel of some sort.
We're doing a lot of P9/P91 and P22, so I've been getting some ER90SB2, ER90SB9, and ER80SB2. Would cracking be an issue. I know all of the chrome pieces we build are PWHT in the furnace to be tempered and bring the hardness levels down.
So, would it be worth it to try or not?
