So i need to weld mallebale cast iron bevel washers to the flange of C channel, then weld the nut to the washer. I have to weld these parts since they will be inaccessible to put a wrench on them. Normally if it was in a low stress aplication I would MIG the cast washers, but this time its alot of force on the washers. Im not sure if I can get away with a couple good sized MIG tacks or even some 7018. I just don't want to have the washer crack and fail due to the welds since it will be a major PITA to re-access the washers/nut.
