Thread: Aluminium welding

    Aluminium welding

    Does anyone know of someone who could weld aluminium, as I have a broken floor plate/trigger guard from a remington 700 detachable magazine, bit of a long shot I know.

    regards

    No need mate, just get some aluminium brazing rods. They do actually work.

    You'll get them on ebay or here : http://www.aluminiumrepair.co.uk/

    Too expensive for a large job, but ideal for small jobs.

    Just remember to direct the flame to the parts, remove flame and then touch the rods to the parts - do not direct the flame to the brazing rod directly.

    Pat, there are specialist welders in all areas. If you can't get fixed up locally, PM me and I'll let you have details of a guy in N. Devon who really is the dogs danglies. He welded an aluminium casting on my bike that would have cost over 1K to replace. He charged me less than the price of a box of .243 bullets!!
    Cheers, Pete.
    PS, I'm not recommending him because he's reasonably priced, more because he's VERY good at what he does!

    Are we sure it's aluminium?, could be mag alloy, if so, it'll just burn.

    I suspect it is not pure Al.
    probably just as cheap to get a replacement from one of the many aftermarket supplies in the US.

    I got a new trigger guard/mag housing and bolt handle for less than 50

    Pat,

    If you decide to replace the bottom metal rather than repair it might be worth a phone call to South Yorkshire Shooting Supplies (Rimfire Magic). They do lots of conversions and apparently have lots of stock Remington bits that have been replace with aftermarket bits. They might be able to sort you out cheaply.

    Cheers,

    Bob
