    Silver solder or braze

    well, probably better to say "it shouldn't be called soldering" and it "should be called brazing" however I see it all over different model forrums, high temp high content silver brazing wire around 45% silver or higher - people often call it "silver soldering" when really isn't. its...

    so those 45 slots, are those going to be to create cooling fins or fan blades built into the flywheels? if so how will you cut the internal slots on the inside of the outer flywheel ring?

    actually looking at your profile widget you are probably not that far from me. I'm in VA, near Bristol. not that it means we are really close but one state below me is all.

    not much progress lately. in fact I think I took a step backward even. I made the tappets in steel and that went well, started making spacers for the cam shaft to space the gear and the cams. used brass and cut it to a thin walled tube. then woops I dropped my cams in the floor. I also re...

    last night i started on the tappets and after i made one i realized i may have made a mistake. plans in the lower right say material drill rod, but on the tappet guide it says brass. it does not specify for the tappet itself. i think the lower right is refering to the cam lobe which is also...

    looking good Brian. WOB, Brian usually laps most of his pistons in (as far as I know from watching his other builds). but I don't think he uses diamond lap to do it. I think he has some clover which ill let him answer for sure but is just aluminum oxide (like sand paper sand) suspended in...

    Annealing Copper

    in my very limited experience here what I do is much the same as I do with sheet aluminum. soot it with my oxy accetaline torch. then adjust mixture for a cleaner flame and then heat the piece by swiping flame back and fourth over the whole piece just until the soot burns off. when the soot...
