This would have been really easy to mess up.  I have mess up a lot of stuff by getting it too hot.

Some of the scale was really light so I burned through it.  Most of it was normal mill scale with some rust, so I cleaned those up.

Lloyd ScharfI have burned up a couple of electric motors after not many hours on them.  I got a re manufactured transmission for my truck.  It was junk out of the box.  The company gave me another one, but that didn't help with down time or the labor with having to swap the transmission again.  A friend of mine rebuilt a PACCAR engine for a customer with all OEM PACCAR parts.  After a few hundred miles the aircompressor locked up and blew the gear train apart.  PACCAR told him it was his problem.  I went though 4 coolant over flow tanks for my truck until I found one that wouldn't leak.  I had a brand new radiator for that truck as well with bad threads in it .  That thread sealant stuff saved me on that.  Pipe dope and Teflon tape wouldn't seal it.  So yes,  an excuse for total junk at premium prices.

Silicon bronze uses less voltage for a given wire feed speed an mild steel.  In the video I was using Pulse MIG.  Short circuit MIG would probably be around 16.6Volts and 300 IPM.  100% Argon at 50 CFM

Clean it just like you would welding Mild steel

I stuck it in the oven to cool slowly
