      Tip #1

      When soldering SPLICED wires, hold the iron UNDER the wire & apply solder to the TOP!
      Most common soldering problem is NOT enough HEAT !
      Use ONLY Rosin Core Solder!---Acid Core Solder turns it GREEN!---GREEN is only for MONEY!

      Fixing a Bad Starter Repair
      by Tom Wesenberg
      A club member's starter quit working the other day, and it was easy to see why. Someone had worked on the field coils or starter contact, and did a poor solder job. They cut the starter field wire short of the contact slit, and left some of the old winding still soldered to the contact. They then tried to solder the windings to the short strap, but didn't use enough heat, which resulted in a cold...

      Gun Blue
      by Dennis
      Anybody tried the gun bluing? I have a shot gun that I got blued 50 years ago, dad gave it to me if I promised to fix it up. So I had a guy in town hot blue it for me while I refinished the stock. I don't know what's involved but I got a pail full of bolts I want to get done but not all at the same time. Do they sell that stuff at the gun shops? I hope they don't ban that out here in CA!...

      Support Your Local Swap Meets
      by Tom Wesenberg
      Yesterday our Model A club held it's annual swap meet at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. The rain cut back the sellers a bit, and the buyers were noticeably down from last year. The rain didn't start until about noon, so there was time to do some good shopping, and the very first thing I saw was a Power Products engine for only $10. I found an antique electric motor and a nice Wilton wood vice for...
