Repair a Broken Pot Metal Door Handle

This pot metal door handle has a piece broken in the middle of the handle. Since we did not have the missing piece, we placed wood behind the part and filled the gap with Super Alloy 1. We used oxyacetylene with a low flame, but a propane torch would work just as well.

 

TIPS:

  • Always remember to turn the oxygen down with oxyacetylene.
  • The best way to build up your pot metal again is to turn down your heat.
  • After soldering, the part can be ground to its original shape and chrome plated.
