Zinc Die Cast/Pot Metal Flare Gun Repair

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.

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.

When John Miller needed to repair his pot metal flare gun, he watched some videos on MuggyWeld.com, and decided Super Alloy 1 1/8" rod and flux was the perfect tool for the job.

 

The pot metal was broken and needed realigned behind the trigger.

 

 

John thoroughly precleaned the pot metal just prior to soldering. This process removes oxidation and allows Super Alloy 1 to adhere to the parent metal.

 

 

John then broadly preheated the flare gun for 45 seconds to a minute, because the metal is thick. The flux color in the photo is root beer brown, indicating the pot metal is now the correct temperature. If the flux turns darker than root beer brown, remove with warm water and start again.

 

 

John added more rod to give the area more strength, and finished the repair. This was his first time using MuggyWeld.com products.

 

 

Thank you John for sending in the photo series.
