I would like to try my hand at silver soldering. Can anyone suggest a source for solder and flux? I am familiar with the process, just never done hard soldering. Taught electronics high reliability soldering in the USAF, and remember my Dad soldering with an acetaline/air torch many years ago. I even have his torches and acetaline bottle. Only problem is the hose for the torch has dry rotted to the point I won't use it. I do have a mapps gas/propane torch that should work. I don't want to invest a fortune in hard soldering equipment as I don't know how often it would be used.
Also a source for fire brick to make a soldering hearth.

Chuck

for solder stuff try these guys http://sra-solder.com/section.php/113/1/brazing

I'm in with supplying my own fasteners, and the time limit looks good too.

Chuck,
A good source of fire brick is a pottery studio. They sometimes have broken
pieces that they use to put shelves on when they load the kiln. As far as
silver solder, the link that joe d provided looks good. Silver solder with
cadmium flows much better and used in small amounts is not a health risk.
Choose a solder with a melting point of 1100 to 1200 degrees. The lower
temp will allow the solder to melt before the flux burns and there is less chance of damaging your parts.

Regards,
Maverick

Dave,

This is Team Build 8.

I don't have any code, but when I'm cutting the Frames I was thinking about putting on the side ... HMEM Team Build 8 2012 Serial number of 1 of 10 (2 of 10 etc). Also adding the Team Member's name on it (just a thought).

What do think?

Pat H.

Thats great. I was thinking on putting something in the corian but on the frame is good as well. I did a quick solid build in autocad of the project and looks like the base will be around 5 3/8 wide by 8 1/4 long. I that will give about 1 inch all around the entire engine with the width 1 inch past the widest part of the crank to be stable. Im going to check what size shipping boxes are close so the size may be a little smaller.

Dave,
I would like to request a base made from B. As far as the G code, I drew up the HMEM logo for the 3 cylinder team build. I can send it in any cad format
or G code. Will it need to be a certain size or can you scale it?

Regards,
Maverick

Hi

I really like the idea of our names & a serial number as well as the "Team Build #8" & HMEM logo.

Dave: Not picky at all as to which corian I get, they all look good to me.

Joe
