Half nut restoration


Hi All,

I built the fixture described in HSM for restoring half nuts. I have
bored out the old threads and now I am thinking of silver soldering a
bronze sleeve in the resulting hole to be threaded 3/4 " x 8 Acme.

I have never silver soldered cast iron. I am a bit leary of brazing
bronze as the melting points may be incompatible.

Any thoughts?
