i know this will lack a lot of important details so i'll just put the
question at the bottom....
let's suppose there is a bike frame with a seatpost stuck in it.
the post is aluminum and the frame is made of steel.
the post will not budge an hair...even when the post is clamped in a
vice and almost crushed...and the frame twisted from side to side.
IF galling has occured, and the metals are separated, will one metal
end up taking peices of the other metal with it when the bond/fuse is
are there types of fusing of metals where there is no damage to either
metal when they are finally separtated?
thanks in advance,
