Funny how snarky comments to others' posts kills interest in posting here.


Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there.

I didn't see any bragging in this thread. But in Texas they say if it is true it ain't bragging.

Steve,
Yes, the "story" is out there and heard by many of the spray welded hook where the piece of weld "just fell off" I don't remember where I heard it a long time ago. Just a "good story" about bad technique.
I have TIG welded hooks on chopper lunp barrels that are silver brazed with no problem. I won't say all, but some. Now not all chopper barrels are silver brazed, those that have brazed ribs probably are not silver brazed, but either copper or brass brazed to allow the heat req'd for silver soldering the ribs. That is a nice and informative thread you posted. Keep in touch.

Why not cut a dovetail in the hook and silver solder in a new bearing surface? I think that English gunsmiths have been doing so for 160 years. But, what do I know?

Dovetailing also known a piecing the hook works but it makes a weak spot at the bottom corner of the dovetail. I have seen cracks at this point. If they had TIG 160 years ago they would have never dovetailed.

Just my opinion
