Rudder Horn and brazing

The second rudder horn was reenforced today. I did a little research on brazing - the process itself is easy and you use a much lower temperature than welding, but be careful! If you use any clamping pressure to hold the reenforcing steel to the control horn, heat will cause the thin metal to distort. If your clamps are too tight, it will squeeze the horn out of shape.

Use the least amount of torch heat to just melt the brazing rod and let it flow.

More tomorow
