Re: Bronze welding

Here's a simple solution: Make a SS plate to bolt onto the bronze one . make it with 3 holes to use all 3 holes in the existing bronze. Put the furler hole maybe 2" up.

Re: Bronze welding

By combining the ideas/recommendations, this has become the solution, admittedly on a temporary basis (but again, what is permanent...?). The plate is brass, not bronze, but quite a tough one, so I have fate in it; applied a generous amount of silicon between dissimilar metals against electrolysis, will keep an eye on it. Cost Ä5, that was all the bolts and nuts, I had the bit of brass plate and cut it to shape.

Re: Bronze welding

Looks good. Be careful , it doesn't look like the "nylok" portion of those nuts ins on the thread and they may loosen up...

Re: Bronze welding

Waiting for the sealant to cure before they will be tightened fully.
