Post Microwelder/Brazer needed!
Hi All,
I was working on a custom 3646 case build but I no longer have access to a drill press, torches, and soldering/brazing equipment so hoping to farm out some lug bar welding.
Material selection is a bit tricky: case is copper, brass, and nickel silver
Lug bars are bronze
2 cases, 8 holes to drill, 4 bars to weld or solder
Let me know if you'd be interested and send me a quote.
If you can also solder/weld the crown tubes as well that would be plus!

this is pretty simple,, use a torch,, heat the case first and then start heating the wire lugs,, the solder will be sucked onto it as the heat gets high enough.. don't heat the solder directly and use a flux

Yup and I've done it before for a bronze case, but now I currently don't have access to equipment hence looking to farm out.
