Now these parts were only soldered with Sta-Brite Silver bearing solder. Will they be strong enough?

I have just checked 4 online metal sites for 1/4" x 1/2" brass bar. What a shock! Prices ranged from $5.18/ft with $14.70 for shipping to $16.22/ft and $16.39 shipping! Anybody have a 6" piece they can sell me for a reasonable price and $5.35 USPS shipping?
As I said before, I have some 2" brass bar ends, 3" long, but the time and setup to cut 1/4" x 1/2" x3/16" pieces would be huge.

Chuck,
Nice job on the soldering, it should be strong enough.
I have some brass for the bearings. P.M. your address.

Regards,
Maverick

Maverick,
Thanks for the offer, I've decided I'm just too lazy! I cut a slice off the fore mentioned brass bar end and proceeded to slice that up on the mill with a slitting saw. First slice yielded 6 pair of roughed out bearing halves, so I cut another slice. The bar ends were free curtesy of my brother, I just needed to get off my but and do it!
I have learned so much from this build, and extended my experience and confidence to no end! Thanks Team Build 8 Group for allowing me to participate!
I've even been looking into a vibrating polisher to make my bits pretty!

Chuck

10 bearing pairs, super glued together, ready for milling to match, drilling and boring bearing hole, and drilling the bolt holes.

http://i571.photobucket.com/albums/s...8/DSCF1355.jpg

Can you see my mistake? I glued the wrong sides together. I glued them on the narrow edge. They're supposed to be 1/4" thick.

I have to separate them and re-glue in correct relationship. If I mill them to length now, I may not be able to lign them up exactly to re-glue.

No heat in the shop so I'm only getting about an hour during the day to work. Maybe 5-6 hours left...

Well, I soaked the bearing sets overnight in acetone and got them separated again. Proceded to measure them and ponder the correct orientation. After several minutes I got out the ol' superglue and had at it again.

You guessed it, glued them up the same way again, WRONG! Bearings are now soaking in acetone again, and I'm soaking my head!

Acetone is just too slow, used heat to separate the bearing halves. Got them squared away and milled to size. Now drilling the bolt and crank holes. I do not have a reamer for the 1/4" crank hole. What do you guys suggest?
I can drill with a letter D drill, that will leave .004 to ream to 1/4". Will that be enough? Should I drill smaller?

Chuck
