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.

What does "blanked-off" mean in the following sentence?

Particular attention should be given to the cleaning of pipelines, joints, bearings, blanked-off ends, mixing equipments etc.


A blanked-off pipe end is simply a cap fitted over the open end of a water or gas supply. Where the pipe is redundant and going nowhere. this seals it. Nowadays caps can be hi-tech push-on plastic or a brass pressure-fitting. Before such labour saving was possible, plumbers would solder a copper cap in place with a gas blow-torch. And even further back it was common practice to hammer the copper pipe flat and solder in a straight line along the squeezed end. This was and is the cheapest option, but it always leaked sooner or later.

it's teh same as dead ends
bluebellbkk | Sep 26, 2013
For example, if a pipe isn't needed any more, it's often easier just to block its end/s rather than try to remove the whole thing. But they still need to be cleaned.

"blanked-off" means sealed with a solid cap
Kiron Kang | Sep 26, 2013
A cap made of plastic or metal is used to seal a pipe that is not used, or needed. Example blanking off the spare hot water outlet as new washing machine only requires a cold water pipe, and has no need for a hot water feed.

How should I melt this metal?

http://www.amazon.com/Lead-Free-Pewter-C asting-Bismuth/dp/B001QV3J46/ref=pd_sbs_ indust_3 I want to melt it so i can cast it. How do you suggest I melt it to a point where I can cast a coin out of it?


As it says (much too far down the page) " The melting temperature is around 466 - 590 F." You can melt it on the kitchen stove or with a torch of almost any kind - I would recommend getting a small cast iron fry pan with a side handle or a melting ladle sold for melting plumbers lead - which is harder to find. Be very careful handling it because it if splashes it can do skin and clothing damage as well as floor, counter, etc.

    Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch

    Home Improvement (Bernzomatic)

    Rating (142 reviews):

    Bernzomatic

    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 "Upton" (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

    Burns but leaves little control over flame

    0 3/5 emptydown - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) (original five-star review) This torch worked exactly as I had hoped for. It was by far the best price I could find for any related items and am happy I made the purchase. It feels quite solid and I have no doubt that I'll have it around for years to come!Follow-up: After spending more time using this torch I've decided to lower the rating. It it very difficult to make fine adjustments to the flame. The knob is tight enough that it stays where you turn it to but making minor adjustments off of that position is fairly difficult. If you just need heat then this will produce it, but if you need more control over flame size/heat then this will present you with a challenge. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 18, 2012

    DANGEROUS!!

    0 1/5 'Pix' A. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) Be careful!! I noticed gas coming out of the torch after I had turned off the valve and the flame stopped. I found I had to turn the knob harder to get the gas to stop completely. After three such cycles, the valve knob started to spin freely and the gas was on full!! I had no choice but to unscrew the torch from the gas canister with a full blast of flame. Please note that I did NOT use tools of any kind. This all happened while operating the torch with my fingers ONLY.

    Better than my old tip, but I wouldn't really call it a pencil flame

    0 3/5 Ryan (Atlanta) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Mag-Torch MT200C Propane Pencil Flame Burner Torch (Tools & Home Improvement) I was looking for a really fine tip with a small flame. "Pencil flame" seems to fit that description, but really this just throws the same flame as the tip I already had. The adjustment are smooth and it is of high quality, but don't expect a flame that you can turn down to the size of an actual pencil tip. I ended up buying one of those smaller, refillable butane torches. I don't know if it's the nature of propane, but I can get a much smaller flame out of the butane torch. Sorry for giving 3 stars if "pencil flame" is standard lingo for this type of tip, but "precise point for detail work" seems a bit of an exaggeration to me. Maybe it's as small as you can make a propane flame, but there are other types of torches out there that produce a much finer flame than this. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 17, 2013

    0 3/5 Randall - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Forney 1720 Plumbers Torch Kit, Air Acetylene (Tools & Home Improvement) The torch is perfect for standard copper sweating. The flame is just right and well controlled. I would give 5 stars but the regulator gauge does not work to give a tank pressure. All my attempts to contact someone for a new gauge have failed. All I need is a new gauge at no cost. There should be better access for solving problems. I could have sent it all back but was in the middle for a big project and needed the torch. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 20, 2012

    Safe lighting design, flint not working?

    We got one torch and though it was defective because it constantly sounded like it was leaking. We didn't return it immediately because we thought we were hearing things. Then it stopped lighting without the aid of an external torch so we brought it in, Blicks took it back and we got a second one because they thought it was defective.I'd say it's less than a month later and the same "it won't light" thing is happening. We have to use a different lighter to light the Lenk after we set it up to try to light it and the butane is flowing. It's too soon to say if this problem is permanent or not -- it seems once you get it lit it will light again for a period of time and then stops. We are wondering if it's an issue with the flint but I can't seem to locate documentation on it.On a positive note: Where other's have complained about the difficulty of the torch lighting as a bad thing, I see it as an inconvenient and safe thing.
