Hello Mike,

 

Here are the pictures that you requested. The copper pieces are  2" plumbing end caps that had been cut back. We used Muggyweld SSF-6 to solder 18-8 Stainless Steel Socket Head Cap Screws to 23 copper end caps.

 


 

On an additional 23 end caps we used Muggyweld SSF-6 to solder both an 18-8 Stainless Steel Socket Head Cap Screw and a 304 Smooth-Bore Seamless Stainless Steel Tube in one operation.

 

You can see in the last photo that the SSF-6 traveled through the hole in the copper, wetting the SS screw threads.

 

 

I selected Muggyweld for this operation because it wets stainless very easily, and its melting point seems to be about 100° F lower than the standard high silver content silver solder.

 

We have not performed any evaluation of the strength since it is already clear to us that it is sufficient for our needs. We will observe the joints over time to determine any aging effects that could adversely affect our application.

 

Thank you,

The 'powder' that you see in the one photo is actually the pink flux coating from the rod. I scraped a little bit off the rod and applied it under my mating part to try to ensure good solder flow under the part.

Just ordered the ssf-6 rods. At first I tried bonding brass to aluminum, but it didn't work out. (The SSF-6 will not bond to aluminum, the Super Alloy 1 will bond brass to aluminum) I then remapped my projected and went all brass, wow, this stuff is amazing. I made a picture frame type border for a custom radiator screen. The miter cuts were then positioned and sweated with SSF-6. The material filled all the gaps and allowed for a super clean join that could be sanded and is still very strong. Many thanks!

 

 

Great stuff. Really strong and cleans up so nicely.

Hello! These are the pictures of that carburetor repair (I called you from Texas on the Stromberg EX-2 ULTRA rare carburetor that had cracked) it worked perfect! I leak tested it and it held for days, no leaks. I can continue with the build now Thanks!


It's a Stromberg EX-2 not to be mistaken for the EX-22. This carb is worth about $2,500 dollars

Everything went well.  I first tried it with the flux on the rod but found that it welded cleaner with the flux removed before hand.  Saved my clamp and the cost of having to replace the entire V-block set because the clamps are no longer available.  Also learned something new in the process!

Mike thank you for your help, your wonderful product and your advice.  I fixed the wood working plane today with the SSF6 silver solder rod.  It worked very well.

 

There are a couple divots at the outer surface that were 3/8s of an inch wide, that were apparently too large, I could not fill them in completely as I was worried about melting out the main braze…
but 95% of the crack is now filled in completely and machined to a good look. It is strong and I am confident in the repair.


Thank you again. I will send you some pics if you like

Hello Mike, My first try was not successful trying to seal the crack on the aluminum water tank, so I melted it off watched the video again and tried to do it the same way. I water tested the tank again and had success. The hot water heater for my boat is reassembled and ready to go back in the boat. Thanks for your help. I would recommend your product to anyone who wants to get the job done.

We had a cast metal part that we needed to put into 2" tube.   To weld we would have had to get large heavy pipe. We preferred aluminum. But how to connect. We were thrilled to find Super Alloy 1. A quick call to Mike verified that we could use Super Alloy 1 for this purpose. Our horse trailer has a new and improved butt bar. Instructions were great! And the product worked as advertised. Quick hint. Put the flux somewhere save. I spilled it twice by tipping the bottle.

Mike,

You have an amazing product.

After numerous failed attempts to repair my pot metal grill, not to mention the further damage I caused, you solved my problem with Muggy Weld. I made a copper plate copy of the missing piece which lapped behind the grill about 1/2 in. I sanded front and back of both pieces, clamped them together, and soldered from the front side only. I concentrated the heat mostly on the copper. The Muggy Weld traveled all the way thru the lap joint to the back. After cooling I was able to build up the copper with Muggy Weld until it was flush with the pot metal. The piece sanded to a ready to chrome finish.

1951 Packards aren't worth much but I've had fun restoring it and my grandkids think it's the coolest car ever. My wife says it's the ugliest car she's ever seen and no wonder they went broke.

Thank you for your great product and your excellent instructional videos.

Mike, I have to tell you that your 77 cast iron electrodes are fantastic--I need to order more to have it on hand.

 
I just welded a small block Chevy 400 engine with a broken ear on the starter mount. The engine was sitting on a 3 wheel engine stand and fell over breaking the mount. I placed a mild steel bolt in the broken mounting hole and built the whole corner back up, then I removed the bolt and re-tapped the bolt hole with no problem. It's looking pretty good.
 
I work on hard to find and restore irreplaceable antique cast iron parts. Your 77 welding rods are better than anything I've tried in the past. I'll try to remember to send you photos of my next cast iron job.

I became a fan for life of your MuggyWeld SSF-6. My 1932 Ford, 355 small block Chevy, 671 Hampton supercharger, 2- 660 Holleys car ran so fast the system I had couldn't supply enough fuel to motor--the car leaned out 3/4 way down track, and the supercharger worked like a cutting torch and burned a hole through head gasket, engine block and head.

I was told by old racers that my engine was junk. I told them I was going to braze the hole shut with the SSF-6 . Needless to say they were all laughing at me, I said "what do I have to lose?"

I closed the holes with your rods and reassembled the motor. Silver solder saved my block and head. I put in bigger fuel lines and have been running the car in the 10.90's @119 mph since 1997 with the repairs. That's pretty fast for a 3100 lb. street rod with air conditioning. I'm Just glad I found your ad!

Thanks Mike

This is one of the larger  copper pieces I solder with your product. As you can see it is ¼ plate and sucks the heat away bad so I really appreciate how well your products work. On the flip side I also do small stuff where I solder thermocouple wire to disk/plate. In this case it is opposite where I will burn wires if too hot. As you can see I use cool blue to keep heat off wire. It is just great, THANKS.

Hi Mike, I got the rod and thought I tell you that after some practice and learning the real importance of getting all the oxidation out and off the metal it worked very well. I found that doing both sides was a trick in its self. My carburetor came out very well and I posted it with pictures on a engine forum I am a part of called SmokStak. It seems to be drawing a lot of attention and maybe you will get some new customers? http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?p=629665#post629665 I can send you the pictures if you would like them for your web page?

Hey this is Jim, I just want to congratulate you on a superb product--that 72 and 77 electrode.  I do antique restorations and I was working on a stove that was 140 years old.  The internal components, meaning the fireback (which is cast iron) was split, worn, and burned through - it was ugly, and that's an understatement.

I said "well, if your welding rod can put this back together (and you must understand I was repairing it not to use but to simply to send off to a foundry to have the parts re-cast), but as it is right now, I could probably use the damn thing!"

I'm just amazed that your rod, especially the 72, could arc weld it.  You have to do it incrementally but that stuff really, really gets into that burnt cast iron. But like I said it's an excellent product and I've never seen a welding rod perform quite like that. So keep up the good work guys and I definitely will consider you in the future for all my electrodes.


Thanks again, and take care

Jim

Hi Mike,
I just wanted to tell you about a repair that I made that I probably never would have even attempted without your SSF-6 Silver Solder. I have attached some before and after photos.

My customer sent me a cast iron body carburetor to repair that had a piece broken out of the casting at the threaded hole where the inlet fitting screws into. It was a 1/8 NPT fitting, and someone had just tightened it too much and broke the casting. The broken piece was long gone. Someone had previously tried fixing it with epoxy, but it had ultimately failed. When I first saw it, I wasnt sure it was even possible to repair it without the broken piece, being such a small casting. I was afraid the heat from welding or brazing would warp it. Then I remembered I had some of your SSF-6 silver solder left over from a manifold repair I had done earlier in the year. I figured I had nothing to lose, so I cleaned and prepped the casting, cut the threads off a 3/8 x 2-1/2 hex bolt and threaded the shank with a 1/8 NPT die. I coated the threads of the bolt with graphite to keep the silver solder from sticking to it, then screwed the bolt into what was left of the hole until it was fully engaged into the threads in what was left of the casting. I clamped the casting into a large vise to act as a heat sink, and using a #3 torch tip, built up the area with SSF-6. After cooling for about 2 minutes, I carefully unscrewed the bolt. It had left almost a perfect set of threads in the SSF-6. After it was completely cool, I bead blasted the casting and ran a 1/8 NPT tap through the threads just to clean them up. I assembled the carburetor and leak tested it, and there were absolutely no leaks! My customer is very happy. Since neither the casting nor the complete carburetor are available any longer, my only other alternative would have been to search for a used one for her. Thank you very much, from both me and my customer, for a great product!

I just ordered the 4 rod pack of your SSF-6 silver solder. As soon as I got it I opened it up and tested it out on some scrap tubing I had, and let me tell you, this stuff is AMAZING! I have been doing household refrigeration for 10 years and I always dreaded the jobs where Id have to join copper tubing to steel. Before, Id sometimes have to give it 2 or 3 attempts until I had a good joint. And even then, a few times Id have a leak come back to get me soon after. I know my problems with joining copper to steel will be a thing of the past now. I was in disbelief at how well your solder flowed and how easy it was to use.
Thank you for making such a fine product, and please DONT EVER discontinue it.

I just wanted to tell you that I am completely happy with your SSF-6 silver solder. I did not have any experience prior to using your product and I tried to join two thin sections of brass with a reputable brand of silver solder with paste flux and ended up destroying the parts. I used your flux coated SSF-6 rods without any additional flux and it easily cleaned, wetted and joined the parts without beading up and falling off like the other stuff I tried. Since then, I have joined thick sections to thick, thick to thin, and thin to thin - no problems. I use a regular propane torch with MAPP gas for the thin parts and oxy-acetylene torch for the heavy ones and it works great! I recommend your product to everyone I know.

I used the welding rod in the starter kit on a generator plate made of pot metal. A piece had broken off and the welding rod worked as advertised. It is a MUGGY MIRACLE!

After a long awaited retirement, I have been in the process of restoring my 1922 Oldsmobile. As you might quess, finding parts for it is nearly impossible. Two critical parts are made of pot metal and of course after 85 years pot metal cracks and breaks apart.

Just thought Id make a comment on Muggy Weld.

Im refinishing a 1970 Monte Carlo. I had removed the vinyl top and I tried to seperate a piece of trim made of potmetal for the customer to have rechromed. I broke it right in front of him.

After getting over my embarassment, slightly, I tried to search for a replacement. Its almost impossible to find and if you do, its broke also. Its just a fragile part.

I happen to read a thread on a Classic Mustang forum about someone reparing an emblem with Muggy Weld. I checked out your web site out and ordered the welding rods.

I was shocked to get them in two days,and even happier to be able to repair the trim piece. I even repaired the other side. Thanks, GREAT product!!!! It works!!

As a computer programmer for 36 years I can recall dozens of conversations 10, 15, 20, 25, and even 30 years ago when we would talk of the computer capabilities we could easily forecast, and those that we would want to build and see. Bill Gates was still in high school at that time.

Your web site is a stunning example of things we wanted, in the many years past, to see. Also, I sense that the design of the pages and the site were not left solely to the support people, but rather have had lots of input from the management at your company.

I purchased a sample kit (7 2& 77 rod) for repairing a damaged bolt hole on a small block Chevy that secures the starter to the block. I used the cast iron welding rod to secure a piece of threaded 3/8 steel rod into the damaged hole where the outside starter bolt would normally have threaded into the engine block. The original threaded hole had the cast iron ripped out the side of the casting when the starter had kicked back on the 388 stroker engine. Hei-coils were out of the question, the walls were too thin (what was left) because of the casting thickness.

I used the 77 rod with a 230v AC stick welder with 95-100amps of power. Built up one small layer of rod at a time cleaning slag off after each pass. I am only a back yard welder and was impressed how well the weld turned out but not only that, it held without cracking. This method of repair saved the engine block from the junk yard.

I would just like to thank Muggyweld for producing such an amazing welding rod that make’s it possible to repair high nickel content cast iron. And by the way, this was repaired while the engine was in the car!! Thanks again.

I just recived an order of Alloy 5 and am emailing you to say -- THANKS! It works great! I was really skeptical because Ive tried others and wasted my money, Muggy weld worked just like you said. After a few practice welds I was going like a pro! Also the shipping time was fantastic. Thanks again, youve got a customer here and I will spread the word.

I have been repairing antiques for more than twenty years. Pot metal has been a real problem. A lot of Art Deco Sculpture is made from pot metal. Until I tried your super alloy #1 it had been a hit and miss proposition. I was a bit skeptical at first but you have me sold and I just recently ordered more. Thank you.

Hey Mike,
Just to let you know. These alloy 1 & 5 rods are great. This is the way aluminum brazing is suppose to be. Ive shown the rods to couple of people as well as the cds. Should be getting an order or 2 if you havent got them by now. Thanks. Will be reordering in the future if & when I run out. This amount could last me for a while.

The cast swing pinion on my MF backhoe was broken in half and badly welded. My welder told me to throw it away that it couldnt be fixed. I found your special rods on the Web and gave them a try. They worked fantastic and my welder was amazed too. The pinion has been holding up under huge pressure - better than new.

 

Thanks

Last week you overnighted me seven welding rods for use on cast iron. I have to share our experience with you.

We own a golf course and use old 4-wheel drive Jeep Wranglers to push our ball pickers, as they seem to hold up better than any other vehicles. Our oldest Jeep is a 1978 model - 25 years old. One of the teenagers who works for us overheated it and cracked the block in two places. Each crack about 4 inches long. We ordered a rebuilt motor ($1,200) for it and were eagerly awaiting its arrival. The motor supplier called us told us there were two motors for that model Jeep and asked us to check the numbers on the Jeep. To make a long story short, there were no motors to be had that would work in our old Jeep.

I asked our maintenance supervisor if he could weld the block and he told me he had never heard of anyone successfully welding a cast iron block as they just cracked on down as the weld was applied to them. (Same thing my Dad told me) We should just junk
