silver, 1200 deg flow temp). I soldered up a crankshaft for a small model
steam engine I'm building. The problem is that I apparently used too much
silver solder on one of the joints and it formed a real nice fillet.
Unfortunately, that fillet is right where a piston rod needs to go. After
re-heating and various other attempts to remove the extra solder I have
found that either it isn't going to be easy to clean up this joint or, more
likely, I just don't know how to do it properly.
So, the question is, is there a trick to getting rid of this silver solder
fillet other than filing it off and re-polishing the journal? Thanks.
