Once More Into The Breach


Round number 3 in the continuing saga of the broken off bolts.

I ran out of something yesterday right before it started raining so I had to do a quick internet search this morning and make a quick run to Home Depot.

I ran out of oxygen for my little Brazing kit that I bought twenty some years ago at Sears

There is no more Sears around here anymore but I knew damn good and well it was a BernzOMatic set.


I had only ever used the damn thing once or twice in all of those years and I know damn good and well I bought at least one extra oxygen bottle for it when I bought the kit but I don’t remember seeing it around so I just went and got two more. I have a small OXY-Acetylene torch but this little mess is in a really confined area with gas lines, rubber hoses and all kinds of flammable shit just inches away from the problem.

This little Brazing kit has a nice small flame tip that I can get right on the bolt with without a shit load of fire going everywhere I really don’t want it to be going.

I am fixing to commence battle again here after I throw some groceries down my neck. Wish me luck.
