Antique Cast Aluminum Weather Vane Restoration

Testimonials

Mike,

These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.

 

aluminum welding and metal repair

I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

This antique weather vane was damaged in the recent Gulf Coast hurricanes.

 

 

We sanded the part and used Super Alloy 5 with an oxyacetylene torch to make the repair on the cast aluminum.

 

 

The part is now ready to be repainted and reassembled.

 

 

TIPS:

 

Cast iron repairs require an oxyacetylene. Use caution when welding thin cast, to avoid overheating the base metal.

 

The flux is an absolute temperature guide, simply watch until it turns into a liquid and youre ready to apply the rod

 

For best results, allow the flux to do its job before adding the rod
