Can a Cracked Harp be Fixed?

Nope. Piano Harps (aka Plates) are made of cast iron. Cast iron can’t be reliably welded. If you’re considering purchasing an old piano, inspect the harp closely for cracks. If you find any, you should pass, because the piano’s tuning won’t be stable (best case) or the plate could actually collapse (worst case).
