Uncle is restoring a corn shucker for his cousin. The thing has babbitt bearings and he is a bit short of enough metal to re-babbitt it.
I figured he could take some tin (we have about 5# between us) and add that to make up enough. The 90% Tin 10% Plumbum alloy ought to work.
I see some mixes use copper. Remembering the woodsmetal thread where it was said that a low melting point metal will disolve a higher melting point metal, I wonder if copper could be disolved in tin at just about tin's melting point. Any one know how they alloy copper into babbitt?
