    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.

    flange

    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.
