Re: Turning Wire Wheel Brake Drums on an Improved Car

I agree, just clean the rust up and use as is. Drums are fairly cheap new or to find good used ones.

Re: FJ - 114 Years - The Story Of The Friendship Ford Isn’t Over Yet

Wow, I haven't paid much attention to the B. I just started my T hobby 6 months ago. Wood body, and that engine, very cool. If you showed me that pic and asked me what it is, my last guess would be a Ford. Thanks, I have more reading to do.

Re: I CAN'T FIND PARTS

I am 60 yrs old and still in the hoarding stage. I need parts for my next 20 projects on the list, 19 of which in my afterlife. I have my own business and am busy 24/7 like most folks. Some of the craftsmen that creates these parts work full time also. We get a little edgy when we cant get our parts...

Re: trying Evaporust for the first time

I have a 5 gallon bucket and its great for soaking things. Great for rusty tools. Soaked all my window regulators on my 30 fordor. That was the main reason I bought it. Worked like a charm.

Re: Steering column and control rods

We take brass sheet and anneal it so we can beat it into a buttplate for flintlocks. Easy to work but like you said, starts to harden back up after you work it.

Re: Steering column and control rods

Cut the rods off. Going to clean this stuff up. Sandblast the rust and then anneal
