ewangoya, converting to int will fail if the asker has , or . in the data. check this example by converting to INT.
I prefer converting to MONEY in such cases.
declare @table1 table(col1 int)
declare @table2 table(col2 varchar(10))
insert @table1 values(10),(20)
insert @table2 values ('10'),('23.00'),('123,234'),('invalid')
select *
  from @table1 t1
  join @table2 t2 
    on t1.col1 = convert(money,t2.col2)
 where ISNUMERIC(t2.col2) = 1
