Which is different from the things people do with cars how?
It's not. But personally, when something comes loose, I like to reach for the welder instead of the closet for coathangers...
I have used coathangers to weld (braze) with in a pinch.
Better than twist-tying your exhaust system back up and leaving it like that til the hanger breaks and you need another...
Brass coat hangers?:huh
No Just the metal ones not the plastic ones. haha
Try it. They work pretty good.
I've seen it done with plain steel hangers, low melting point, just not very strong.
The only thing that coat hangers and proper ER70S-2 rod have in common is that they both melt. Coat hangers are made of the cheapest and nastiest steel alloy available.
Your missing my point. In a pinch. No its not a welding rod but it has worked for me more then once.
Coat hangers will let you gas-weld mild steel to cast iron, though.
not. nothing beats free auto parts!
Your missing my point. You braze with brass, you weld steel. I know people gas weld with coat hangers, but unless you have a brass coat hanger, you don't braze with a coat hanger. BTW you can weld plastic with a plastic coat hanger!
Can be done, but it's harder with a torch than with an iron or a heat gun, carbon layer forms and keeps it from bonding
Also depends on the type of plastic, obviously...
Too much text....
So what do you call it when you use Silvaloy?
