Tail Wheel Repair

After many attempts with soldering irons I finally just used a plumbers torch to attach the brass tube to the bracket. I first protected the plane with tin foil, as best I could, generously tinned the parts and then gave them a quick blast. I then used JB weld to add another layer around the parts.

Acetylene Older professional plumbers tend to use a heat source that they grew up with — an acetylene torch. Acetylene is very explosive and should be handled with care. The acetylene cylinders used by plumbers come in two sizes.

    Great at first. Won't light after 8 months.

    I thought I'd invested a little extra money for convenience and durability. Wrong.While the TS4000 I purchased from Amazon worked flawlessly for 8-10 hours of use, it won't start at all after having sat idle for 8 months. When I start it 'manually' via an aim-n-flame, it has a broad fan-shaped flame that doesn't heat property.I guess the instruction manual should have said to test the TS4000 before each job, as it is not a dependable tool. Now I'm stuck with no water, an upset pregnant wife, and a run to Lowes to pick up another 'disposable' torch.Shame on Bernzomatic.UPDATE: The broad fan-like flame was caused by some "micro-webs" in the neck of the torch. While they didn't look like they could possibly block the airflow, I guess they were sufficient to disrupt the swirling mixture of air/propane. I blew them out with some compressed air and the TS40000 is acting like new. I now store the "torch" in a large zip-top freezer bag to keep out the... 4/5 Stephen Smith (San Diego, CA) - See all my reviews, June 11, 2011

    Great at first, but durability is poor.

    0 2/5 Upton O'Goode (WA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) Like other reviewers, I think the Bernz-o-Matic TS-4000 Trigger Start Torch Head is a good piece of plumbing equipment. My only addition to their comments is that I have been through three of these in about 5 years. They get to the point where the piezoelectric sparker just stops working. I am an average homeowner who uses the torch infrequently for plumbing, and almost weekly for starting the charcoal grill or wood stove. When the torch no longer sparks, it is just as good as any other, much cheaper, torch head. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2009

    I LOVE THIS THING.

    I got this after using my dad's while visiting my parents at their cabin in the mountains. There are a zillion uses for this thing -- lighting the grill, starting fires (stubborn green brush / wet wood don't stand a chance before this thing!), torching ant / hornet nests, lighting fireworks, soldering, joining pipes (if you're a plumber), etc.After using my dad's Bernzomatic up there for a week, I knew I had to get one as soon as I got home... and I did.This thing is sweet. You can use it with Propane or MAPP gas; MAPP is about 2.5x the price (around seven-fifty at my local HW store, whereas the Propane was something like three bucks) but burns much hotter. For my purposes (lighting fires, starting the grill, and roasting ant beds... basically just playing around), normal Propane is more than sufficient. You can use the tall blue propane cylinders from your HW store, or the squat / fat dark green ones you'd normally use for your camp stove / lantern... it's a... 5/5 Bazuro (Orlando, FL) - See all my reviews, August 6, 2010

    It's ok, but not what I expected

    I'll start by saying that I am returning this item. The first job I used it on caused the plastic housing for the igniter button to melt. I was using it as directed, no differently than I have been using my previous torch for months without issue.As for the product itself, it's alright. Not what I was hoping for though. The hose is nice, it allows me to keep the tank upright (I'm using those small 14.1 oz tanks) so that I don't get flaring, and the belt clip is pretty handy too. However, the swirl flame, which is supposed to offer a hotter flame, wasn't exactly what I was hoping for. I'm not sure if mine was just broken, or if I was doing it totally wrong, but when I lit mine up I had to turn the gas on all the way for the flame to stabilize. That kind of defeats the purpose of having a variable nozzle. I noticed that if I didn't have the gas all the way open, my flame would sputter, like an old engine, and the flame would come out in rapid bursts. Once I turned the gas... 3/5 HaLo2FrEeEk - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Flame Out

    0 1/5 GJM (Columbus, OH USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Mag-Torch MT560C Self-Lighting Tradesman Regulated MAPP or Propane Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) It would be a nice torch if it would light and stay lit. The only way this torch would light was to hold the tip close to a non-combustable surface & push the light button. As soon as it was moved away from the lighting position the torch would go out. Returned product & went back to more expensive and reliable Bernzomatic. Reliability trumps expense every time. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 9, 2009

This review is from: Goss KA-1H Soldering Kit for Use with "B" Acetylene Tanks with Economical BA-3 Feather Flame Tip (Tools & Home Improvement) This was exactly what I needed to do my light soldering. Though I still can't figure how they tighten the "B" tank connection fitting into the regulator. The tolerance is so close there's no room to get anything on the pipe to screw it in. Also, there is hardly no room on the fitting either just a slight surface on the flats but not enough to get a socket on,. Somebody will have to explain that one to me. All I have to say is they want to make sure they don't waste money on giving you an extra !/2 inch of 1/4 inch brass pipe. This is the old - Prest "O" Lite torch, feather flame, quiet. If you need to sil-braze. or need to solder large fittings, valves, etc then, you need the turbo torch. Just for info if you need the adapter for an "mc" tank it's CGA520 to CGA200. Then you have options now to use either the mc or B tank. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 6, 2015

    Standard Propane Fuel Cylinder for Portable Torches

    This is a standard propane fuel cylinder, compatible with most small portable torch heads. I am using these cylinders with a BernzOmatic TS8000, which accepts both Propane and Propylene Fuel Cylinders. Does not burn as hot as Propylene, but is not as expensive either. This propane cylinder normally costs $2.50-$3.50 each at local retail stores. They have small fill ports, separate from the main connector on the top of the cylinder. I've never found anyone who could/would refill them though. Hence the 4 stars. It's a shame that you have to dispose/recycle these when they are empty.Purchased from Amazon vendor "TechnologyLK", for some reason expecting a bulk pack of cylinders. Only received one cylinder and it seemed to take quite a while to arrive. Paid $19.75 after shipping. Looked at their listing again and have no idea why I thought I was receiving multiple cylinders, but certainly NOT worth paying $19.75 after shipping for one cylinder if you have the option... 4/5 J.

    0 5/5 john doe - See all my reviews This review is from: Standard Propane Fuel Cylinder (Misc.) Yes, these are under $3 at the big box hardware stores. But guess what... hazmat shipping is insanely expensive, and if you live in a remote corner of Montana and this is cheaper than driving your pickup truck 40 miles to get a new cylinder, then this is for you. If you live next door to a hardware store, maybe not.Don't leave a negative review because of the price. If you have a more economical alternative, please seek it.Also, I've been using these for decades. They last forever, not a single bad thing to say. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 20, 2015

    MAP-Pro is NOT MAPP

    I have only recently found out that MAPP is no longer available (since 2008 doh!)MAPP (5300*F) burns much hotter than MAP-Pro (3730*F) or propane (3600*F). Propane at around $3 per bottle and MAP-Pro at around $10 from local big box stores (US). I recommend buying Propane at local big box stores for most projects around home. Learn to use propane torch to preheat and minimize cooling effects such as wind for optimal soldering. MAP-Pro can be helpful for seized bolt removal, larger pipes or large brass fittings. Try different torch tips for your specific applications for maximizing propane or improving fake MAPP (MAP-Pro) gas. Brazing and certain application just isn't feasible with MAP-Pro and most definitely not with propane.Do I sound upset with discontinued MAPP, some what. I am more upset that Bernzomatic made MAP-Pro looks like MAPP for unsuspecting consumers. They could have used different name and even different color to distinguish MAP-Pro from MAPP.

Steampunk - Plumbing - Lighting the Menorah Double-Sided Standard Business Cards (Pack Of 100)

hanukkah, chanuka, menorah, festival of lights,
I remember when my Great Grandpa bought this menorah. Crazy looking thing, wires, gas hook ups, but it was a grand device. Hooking it up was a bit tricky, but it didn't take long. We would all sit around it, turn on the gas and just be happy it was the first night of Chanukah. However we would often forget to turn on the ignition first, and often the room would fill with gas, and the result was usually a huge fireball. Well even to this day, it wouldn't be Chanukah without the smells of latke's and burning hair.
