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.

    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?)

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

    Difficult to ignite

    I knocked two stars off this product due to the difficulty in getting it lit.I purchased this torch to singe the ends of paracord, for that purpose it works fairly well. My main complaint about this model is that it is extremely hard to start with one hand. You have to twist the starter knob and then push to ignite. I've used other torches which can be started with just your thumb (while gripping the body of the torch) and starting this one is just a pain.The good things about it are that it comes with some butane fuel already in it (ready to use out of the box), the textured grip is comfortable and the base allows it to be used on a table "hands-free".While I appreciate the security that the ignition mechanism provides (safety first, and all), in reality it just gets in the way of the use of the torch.I purchased the... 3/5 nobody "nobody" (everywhere) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
