  2. Hello Everyone. I've actually used Sherm's. They do a good job on plating.
  3. Looks like it's a little warped as well.. No worries though, it can easily be repaired back to its original condition.
  4. Hey Pete. In my professional opinion and experience, you're far better off doing absolutely nothing rather than attempting to repair with jbweld. You see, pot metal is literally a meyal sprung that if left unplated or for that matter unpainted it will absorb any wet substance that it comes in contact with it including jbweld. That said, if or when you decide to go with a permanent solution, you will be faced with a considerably higher repair cost due to metal contamination which must be removed/replaced. In a nutshell, leave it alone until you decide to do it right.
  5. Yes Pete. Text or email me, or pot a photo or two so we can see what you end up with when they arrive. I'm sure I can help you clean 'em up. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ Thanks brother!
  6. Muggyweld is a very low temperature solder and is typically used for rejoining broken pot metal parts - and works great for some ornamental parts. Not so much for mechanical parts or under plating. One of the most common problems with pot metal is that (without a trained eye) it's hard to spot "dead metal"... You see, dead pot Metal on the surface looks fine, but is a slightly darker shade of gray however if it's cleaned or lightly sanded it seems to disappear, but has only ducked out of sight. A person can easily and unknowingly solder good pot metal to dead metal and attempt to relate it onl
  7. Hey Walt. The pot Metal problem has been a century old problem that has caused so many darned problems for people and has siest many restorations that otherwise would have been completed much earlier. But this I can say with all sincerity that damaged, rotted and or broken "non-repairable" pot metal parts is 100% a problem of the past. πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

  10. Hello. I've repaired pot Metal carburetors. Post some photos or text them to me (707.621.5052) perhaps we can save that for pot Metal carburetor!
  11. I realize this is an old post, but some pot Metal parts are impossible to find or retrofit for that matter. That said, my name is James Ruther and pot Metal repair is my expertise. Unfortunately not all pot Metal parts can be welded due to contamination, however there is, depending on the part can be soldered back together to create a new casting. But before recasting is recommended, I make every attempt to rejoin/fabricate and replace missing or rotted pieces to restore pot Metal part(s) back to its pre-damaged state. Here are a couple photos of a gettleman's 1932 Dodge headlamp switch that u
  12. I very much appreciate your offer - It's very kind of you. I charge by the hour at $60/hr. I offer a 100% guaranty against failure on all of my repairs. Also, I metal finish every project to resemble the original appearance. I am currently working on an aaca member's '39 Lincoln Zephyr grille... I will post photos of the finished work and ask the gentleman to give an account of his experience working with me. Actually I'm very excited to have the privilege of adding it to my repair album. Very nice vehicle he has... Anyhow, oh. I didn't catch your name? It's good to know you! πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
  13. Even if it's distorted, bent etc. I can straighten it if you wish?πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
  14. Why sure. Absolutely. I wouldn't advocate to repair an aftermarket part unless that's what is desired. James Ruther
