    8 3/4 Housing - Is this crazy?

    Yes, I'm aware of the uses for ER309, I used it to weld stainless steel wear rings into cast steel bolsters. I just wondered why you mentioned it in the first place in post #4 for a simple rear end housing.

    8 3/4 Housing - Is this crazy?

    Isn't ER309 used for stainless alloys? I thought most post WWII axle housings that aren't stamped were cast steel. Unlike cast iron, we had no requirement for preheating with heavy cast steel items on the railroad. There wouldn't be any carbide precipitation on a normal steel casting as that...

    Who Likes Ships? We Have Aircraft and Trains.

    Although the deck guns were heavily greased and had water-tight plugs on the end for submerged running, the simple answer is that before nuclear power, submarines stayed on the surface most of the time anyway and were submerged only to hide or sneak up on an enemy ship. The battery power didn't...

    The IGNORE feature.

    I do have a few people on the 'ignore' list, and it isn't because I disagree with their opinions, or that they continually say something stupid or have given me a red x or anything like that. These are the ones who clutter up my "new posts" pages with row after row of for sale items, and when...

    Best way to tell if leaf springs are still good

    Who Likes Black & White Photography?

    Oh, I know all about that AVRO Arrow. I have over a dozen books on it (including the pilot's flight manual) and the engine which was being tested on the pod in the foreground B-47.
