Fix Broken Pot Metal with a Propane Torch

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.

Repair a broken pot metal or zinc die cast table leg using Super Alloy 1 and a propane torch. 



This piece is an antique heirloom that was passed down for generations. The woman who requested the repair was quite upset when her husband fell on the table and broke its leg. 



The leg is very heavy so we heated the part much longer than you would if it was smaller or thinner. We heated the inside or backside of the table leg to build up the solder. Because the part is broken in two, we need to flip leg over and repair the other side. 



When heating the opposite side we were in danger of loosening the solder already in place. We packed the area with MuggyWeld Cool Blue Heat Paste to stop the heat transfer. This unique product saved us time and headaches as we would have been playing the game of soldering one side and then the other.
