Steering Quadrant...Aluminum heavy oxidation.

I have a cast aluminum quadrent on my Hans Christian 38, cracked as seen in photo. What is the best way to go about this... Replacements, recast, epoxy? Any thoughts from those that have had this come ?

Exclamation Re: Steering Quadrant...Aluminum heavy oxidation.

If it were me I’d be worried about intergranular corrosion or the like, seeing how critical this part is, id just remove and replace, I’d imagine Edson makes a new one, guessing like $500?

If you can’t buy one off the shelf and make it fit, bring the quadrant to a local foundry. They can cast a replacement in your choice of material.

Plus it will need machine work after the pour, especially if it’s sandcast vs lost wax.

You’d have to take the existing one there, they’d glue it back together, make a latex mold, pour wax, make a tree for i, take that to slurry, burn out the wax, pour the Al, break and media blast off the slurry, grind and sand it to spec, machine the shaft and keyway.... materials and hours that’s going to add up.

I’d wager that will be a multiplier more expensive than just ordering a Edson.
