    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...

    Silver solding flux question
    by wrndln
    I think I might try to silver solder some parts with worn areas like door dovetails. I did some silver soldering many years ago and still have some sticks of silver solder and some Stay Silv flux - see picture below. The flux has dried out and hard. Is there a method of returning the flux to a semi-liquid state somehow? Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.

    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!...

    PPG phasing out Lacquer... Old dog needs a new trick
    by Jwmckenzie
    My paint store informed me that the PPG DDL product is being phased out. They are no longer making the product and just letting the inventory run out. So although they are looking for the components to make me some Manila Brown for my Station Wagon, I have little hope I will be able to spray lacquer on the Wagon.

    Time to move to Urethane, likely PPG Concept Here is my problem.......

    Infrared Thermometer Temperature Gun
    by BudP
    The more time I devote to the Model A hobby, the greater my appreciation for precision, measurement and efficiency-mechanical efficiency/engine efficiency/braking efficiency/tire road adhesion/bushing tolerances/personal efficiency/etc. Can you give me a recommendation for a reliable infrared surface temperature thermometer gun? Many thanks!...
