I can't add much as far as silver soldering as all I have done is a brass muffler. But you do have to get it hotter than you would expect before it actually flows. Personally I didn't like the idea of a built up crank and avoided it. I also wanted counter weights and felt Hamilton's suggestion of bolting on counter weights was just asking for it to fly apart at the most inappropriate time(such as any time it's running). I tuned mine so that in it's prime it would run 7500 RPM. That being said, if your intention was to run it at a sedate pace you should have no problems with it. Mine did run as low an RPM as 450. You could make your flat stock longer and that would act as a counterweight.
