The Holy Grail is in Sight ??

The quest to actually find someone to reline your brake shoes & true your brake drums & work could be finally over, after a Tip from a very well known Gentleman, i sent off 2 sets of Springer brakes to an OldTimer who's been apparently doing these since the Romans ruled England, well today i got them back & they look good, real good , anything that's wrapped with Care in brown paper gets my pulse pumping, just that oldschool touch is all that was needed to know this is The End of The Rainbow, the workmanship Perfect, the shoes fit perfectly and the drum is trued to perfection. stay tuned for the final test on the Road.

Glowing Copper

Annealing the Copper Gaskets before fitting them to the HogGoblin

Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment wherein a material is altered, causing changes in its properties such as strength and hardness. It is a process that produces conditions by heating to above the recrystallization temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. Annealing is used to induce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stresses, refine the structure by making it homogeneous, and improve cold working properties.In the cases of copper, steel, silver, and brass, this process is performed by substantially heating the material (generally until glowing) for a while and allowing it to cool. Unlike ferrous metals which must be cooled slowly to anneal—copper, silver and brass can be cooled slowly in air or quickly by quenching in water. In this fashion the metal is softened and prepared for further work such as shaping, stamping, or forming.
