    Question on brass horn repair.

    the fix is - Low Temp solder ! clean area of all old solder use scraper if need be ! & I mean REALLY Clean !!! is a must - propane or butane torch low heat ! wet rags around other solder joints in the area ! Heat is not your friend in this cool is it can be tricky not to melt the other joints just did something like this 4 month ago was shown how by a Master Sliver smith a good friend of mine Steve's Welding

    Any use for forge scale?

    scale will prevent steel from forge welding together ! so if you were making a bell out of pipe you would put some in pipe and flatten pipe then draw/flare out to bell shape then open up & finish shape + also stuff above It has use's
  8. I use 1105 have had no problem with it even if I build it up past what they say is good ! 2110 is a bit harder One day I will get some & use on the edges
  9. if you plan to make a lot of these your going to have to make press type tooling just for it Idea weld some hole slugs together then weld to bottom dish then cut hole in top dish die & taper slug stack so pieces will not lock down into jig also mite need punch out hole so you can get part out of jig a bit of work to make ! should work though ! Ho use forging lube to will help in removing part from jig
  10. I have repaired Anvil's Much Worse !! & Have done Over 100 + in 20 some years & Not 1 complaint !! so repair done right Work's / If you can weld ?? it does take a lot of time !! I also talked to Stoody's Rod Tech's back then just to make sure &*** That was Before I heard of Rod G !! Steve's Welding & Repair - Fab & Blacksmithing the need for My First Anvil started me down that LONG Road I have anvils in 6 states that I know of

I us this for brake's on Lg farm field earagation sprinklers that looks like its full !!! of grease or oil & wet ! its a brake should be dry to a point buy some brake clean spray that should get it cleaner ? PS or replace with new pad & rivet = copper or brass to steel piece thats what I do when needed
