I ordered your Super Alloy #5 to weld a hole up in an aluminum 2x4 barrel intake for a 56 Corvette. Needless to say, the product worked just like the video showed. I must have watched the video a dozen times to see if I was missing anything. It seemed too easy, but it really was easy. Thanks for a product that performed exactly as described. I am sold.
Since writing to you via your website, I now found your email address enabling me to attach photos of our first cast iron repair with your 77 rod. It was amazing how nicely the 77 flowed with no splattering and popping as experienced in prior cast iron welding repairs. We did not take time to go for a real pretty weld, being more concerned with getting a good, deep penetration weld for maximum strength on this cast iron mounting bracket for the heavy sanding head for a Craftsman 6x48 belt sander in which this part was no longer available, thus rendering it useless until along comes Muggy Weld 77!!! Now we will have a much used valuable shop tool again available for regular use. Thank you kindly for your great neighborly customer service.
Using your Super Alloy 1, I repaired a pot metal rear glass frame for my 1938 Chevy truck in three places. One repair it filled a tapped hole that I needed. I drilled it and tapped for thread insert. Works great. Pictures available.
Here are a before soldering and an after soldering photo of the steel intake I built for my 1990 Mazda B2200 using the SSF-6 solder. It worked great, I used a plumbing propane torch and a propane garden torch to preheat the intake, since the flanges are quite thick: 3/8"
Your Super Alloy 5 has enabled us to make repairs we couldn't before. As a result, our business has increased 80%. Thank you!
I got your Super Alloy one last week and proceeded to braze and join a broken bracket on my pot metal sculpture lamp. It worked wonderfully. Prior to this I tried calling around to professionals and no-one knew how to fix pot metal and they asked me to tell them if I figured out how to do it. I tried regular solder, epoxy glue prior to your alloy 1. Nothing worked. - Thanks
I used your 77 rods to repair a cast iron block this morning and I was very impressed. It was a broken ear where the transmission bolts to the block. About 2" x 1". Completely snapped off during a wreck. The car only had 36,000 miles and the customer didn't want to get a used engine with 60-80,000 miles. I didn't take any pictures, wish I had because it came out even better than I thought it would have.
I was tempted to use TIG with those 77 rods but it was on a Saturday and I didn't want to chance something going wrong. I tried calling you guys but I ended up stick welding it about 1/2" at a time, peening the weld and letting it cool in between. I have to tell you, that stuff laid in there beautifully (It almost looked like TIG). If it holds as good as it looks, I saved the customer a lot of money. I used the stick process and they worked very well! They flowed in nicely and the welds looked great. It saved my customer from replacing the engine block.
I highly recommend these rods, can't wait to try them with TIG!
The SSF-6 silver solder rod is an excellent product. I used it to solder a stainless steel nipple to a Cornelius keg lid (I'm making a forced carbonation lid for my homebrew) and it worked like a charm. I couldn't find a weld shop locally to even attempt the job.
I've now got my guys brazing the thick bus leads to the thin aluminum sheet and making it look easy now! several of them had attempted it without my guidance and failed miserably, convincing themselves that it would not work. When I showed them the right way to do it they were all very excited to learn the new technique. Needless to say it has solved a lot of problems around here. I look forward to trying it in some other applications around here as they come up. Thanks again for your help in getting this going, I really appreciate it!
