Oatey cast repair flange
One of these is one day going into my 1950s basement rough.
Is it tough enough? I know you do not like to use the plastic ones but I see little alternative for my cast iron application.
I consider myself an accomplished DIY'er. I don't know everything but help where I can. I'm not a pro, but like to think I'm professional.
we use them all the time...
saves you a lot of greif and misery...
it will work for decades

add a few more 9's to the decimal and you will have the percentage of broken ones which ARE plastic. A new cast iron flange is the proper installation, therefore the one you describe is not the "only" solution.
