Antique Pot Metal Horse Statue 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.

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.

The one trick this pony was tethered to was falling down. With a broken leg, made from pot metal-- the chances of standing proud again were slim to none. After consulting her local welding shop (with no luck) Sandra brought this statue to a Northwest trade show and asked Mike Muggy to make the repair.

 

Pot metal or zinc die cast comes in countless forms, and can be found in almost every home or garage: dresser drawer handles, antique figurines and statues, classic car parts and more. Many shops will not repair pot metal due to its low melting point.

 

After determining this part to be pot metal, Mike used Super Alloy 1 and a propane torch to join the broken pot metal pieces.

Mike removed the oxidation with a stainless wire brush (a wire wheel is preferable, but was unavailable), then painted the parts liberally with liquid flux, heated the parts until the flux turned to a caramel color, and deposited the Super Alloy 1 by rubbing the rod on the broken pieces. *always be careful not to heat the rod itself.

 

 

After the piece cooled, Mike used a wire brush and some warm water to remove the flux, and Sandra's cherished statue was as good as new.
