I had that model jointer. IMHO, $200 seems a bit high for one in good working order. Knowing how Delta charges $8 or more for a UniSaw arbor nut, the cost of a replacement fence could be much more than you want to pay if the fence is still available.
Lincoln, the welding company, says welding cast iron is difficult but not impossible. The problem with welding is that you're going to have to machine the face of the fence. More $$$
I think that if you can get the jointer for close to nothing, you could try about 4 tubes of super glue gel to hold the fence together. In theory, the fence should slide together nicely along the break. Some wax paper under the fence, a very liberal amount glue and some clamping pressure overnight. You may need some acetone to clean up any squeeze out.
BTW - As was noted earlier, "fell out of a pick up truck". That possibility scares me because things could be bent to the point of no alignment possible.
