    This area is a place to discuss the suitable substitutes for any hard to find
    or obsolete material called for in the old plans, as well as materials that
    may better suit an application in any given build.

    Working on the Breisch duplex pump. For the steam pistons, which call for Bronze rings, he wants the piston made of Bronze also. I have no solid bronze and being the piston has a 1/4" hole I need solid, I do have it cored so can make the rings! So the question is why couldn't I use brass for the piston & Bronze for the rings??
