Hello
Dear friends what is your opinion on production con rods from brass
flat rod 3mmx12mm.
I would like to use it for 40 ccm four cylinder/4x10ccm/ but i am not sure
if brass is suitable or solid enough for con rod production.
Your advices are welcome.

I wouldn't use brass myself. It's pretty soft. Bronze would be better but I much perfer aluminium. Less rotating mass the better.
