old battery terminal tool repair
« on: October 24, 2020, 06:48:08 PM »
Cast iron welded, Peterson's welding flux, henrob/dillon/cobra torch.I didn't think we were going to get any welding done. Used the "B" tank air/acetylene for soldering earlier. Turned the oxy/acetylene on both Meco regulators crapped out differently. But I had my old Sears / Craftsman circa 1975, ox reg was rebuilt in the early 80's. They worked fine.
My son was here so I did the 1st one then he did the second. rigging and jigging the items took longer than welding and brazing. He always said I never show him anything, wrong he wasn't watching.
