-Chapter I. Soft Soldering
Many times the craftsman, who takes great pride in his work and delights in leaving every job he does well appearing, is discouraged with his failure to do a soldering job neatly. A man may do a job w...
-Fluxes For Soldering
Flux is applied to the surface of metals that are to be soldered. It helps to keep oxide from forming and makes the solder flow freely. A demonstration of this can be seen when tinning the soldering c...
-Zinc Chloride
Zinc chloride is the most important flux as it can be used for so many metals. It is easy to prepare and can be kept for a long time in a covered container. When zinc chloride is prepared the containe...
-Soldering Coppers
Some mechanics refer to the soldering copper as soldering iron or soldering bit. When the term soldering iron is used it would seem that it was made of iron. Copper is used as this metal is a very goo...
-Hammering Out Copper
The point of the soldering copper may become blunt after it has been filed a number of times due to the fact that with each filing more metal is removed from the narrow part of the sides than up where...
-Reason For Tinning Copper
A copper must be tinned so it will carry a small body of molten solder in which the object to be soldered is partly submerged or flooded. This flooding is the medium by which the heat is conveyed to t...
-Chapter II. Description Of Metals
The beginner should have some knowledge of the common metals used in soldering and metals which can be soldered. This will help him to a great extent as some metals that can be soldered melt at a low ...
-Description Of Metals. Continued
Copper Copper is about the most useful of all metals. Without copper our communication systems and electric supply systems would hardly be possible in their present proficiency. It is one of the be...
-Chapter III. Lessons In Soft Soldering
Before attempting a soldering job it will be best for the beginner to get some practice on junk material. Galvanized sheet iron would be a very good metal for this purpose. At most any tinner's or plu...
-Lesson 2. Soldering A Seam On Galvanized Iron
Soldering a seam on galvanized iron can now be tried. Two short pieces about 6 long and 3 wide will do. These two pieces are folded and seamed the same as shown in Figure 4. Figure 4. Clea...
-Lesson 3. Soldering Up A Hole
The next practice will be soldering up a hole in a piece of sheet metal. If the hole is very small it can sometimes be covered by tinning but if the hole is large a patch will have to be put over it. ...
-Lesson 4. Bead Seam
At some time a job may come along where a seam would have to be covered with a heavier body of solder for additional strength or weight. Or sometimes a seam is run where appearance counts and a decora...
-Bead Seam. Continued
Go along until the other end is reached. Try to keep the copper from touching the pasters when doing this. Now the seam is ready to be floated. Take a piece of tallow candle and run it along the seam ...
-Soldering On Lead and Zinc
Lesson 5. Soldering On Lead The tinning explained in the lessons up to this time has been done on metals that have a much higher melting temperature than that which can be obtained with a soldering...
-Lesson 7. Soldering A Cup Joint
The usual method for joining lead pipe is by wiping a joint. This is an art which the average craftsman has not mastered. Lead pipe can be joined by soldering as well as by wiping. This soldered joint...
-Lesson 8. Soldering A Side Seam
If the seven lessons have been gone through several times it would be expected that a side seam would be in order. It will be best to start with two pieces of galvanized iron. Make the folds and seam ...
-Lesson 9. Soldering Wire Splices
There is now a copper ready with only one side tinned which affords a very good opportunity to demonstrate the importance of a well tinned copper. The soldering for this lesson can be done on a twiste...
-Lesson 10. Correcting A Faulty Soldering Job
Before leaving the soldering copper there is one more very important subject which should be taken up. The craftsman is often called on to do a soldering job which has been done before. It very often ...
-Chapter IV. Soldering And Sweating With The Torch
Soldering objects which are made of sheet metal or light tubing does not draw such a great amount of heat from the soldering copper, but when heavy pieces are to be tinned the heat of the copper would...
-Sweating Heavy Lug To Wire
Heavy wires which must be connected to a terminal of a large switchboard or other electrical apparatus are soldered to lugs for convenience in fastening. Many lugs are soldered to wires without the wi...
-Tinning By Pouring Or Dipping
Tinning can be done with a solder pot and ladle. The solder is melted in a solder pot to a moderate temperature. This temperature is best tested with a thin pine stick or a piece of paper folded sever...
-Seaming And Soldering Bottom In A Pail
Figure 16 shows how a new bottom can be put in a pail. The body of the pail will not extend below the bottom as the pail was originally constructed. The new bottom will be flush with the bottom of the...
-Chapter V. Hard Soldering Or Brazing
The information and practice which has been gone through up to now has been on soft soldering. This means that the solder used has been a comparatively soft metal. Some information will be given on ha...
-Hard Soldering Or Brazing. Continued
The danger of overheating iron or steel is not very great but when heating copper or brass care must be taken not to melt the metal. If solder of a high silver content is used the work need not be hot...
-Brazing Bandsaw
Figure 20 shows the ends of a bandsaw ready for brazing. The length of the joint is one tooth which is sufficient for saws with seven or less teeth to the inch and not wider than one-half inch. The jo...
-Chapter VI. Shop Projects
Files are a very necessary part of every tool kit and should receive the same care that all good cutting tools require. The cutting teeth of a file are made to cut on the forward stroke. Pressure shou...
-Cage For Electric Copper
When working with a copper which has to be heated over some sort of fire the convenient thing to do is to place the copper back on the fire when it is not being used or it may be placed on some metal ...
-Combination Bunsen Burner
The Bunsen burner is one of the most convenient means for heating work in the shop. The handy craftsman can make an attachment which will make the burner more useful. Many times when sweating a piece ...
-Converted Gas Stove For The Workshop
Figure 27 illustrates a gas stove commonly called a hot-plate which is an improvement to any workshop. One burner is changed so that the flame burns directly under the soldering copper. The round bu...
-Dome Or Hood For Heating Copper
This hood is illustrated in Figure 28 and is to be used on the gas stove shown in Figure 27. The construction of this hood is not a difficult task. If directions are followed carefully it will compare...
-Back For Hood
Cut a piece of the metal to make Figure 28-B. This piece is 41/2x51/2. Measure 23/4 from three sides and make a light center-punch mark. Using this mark, first set the dividers for a 23/4 radius a...
-Baking The Clay
Remove the wooden plug from the vent hole and place the hood on top of a hot stove or over a medium gas flame. In a short time some spots will begin to look dry. If any cracks appear mix the powder wh...
