Brazing

 

Many times brazing can be the best method to make a welding repair. This is most often the case with worn cast iron parts that need to be rebuilt and machined back to the correct tolerances. It isn't high tech but it works very well.

 

A great example of this occured during a recent rice harvest season. A customer brought in a worn combine part at 10:oo am on a Friday morning. The combine dealer did not have this part in stock. The customer was understandably very anxious with a crop to be harvested and unfavorable weather expected soon. The part was cast iron and was badly worn at the bearing land. We were able to rebuild the part using the brazing process and machine it to the correct size. We had the part ready by 1:15 pm at a cost of less than $100.00 and our customer was able to harvest rice that same day.
