    Thank you Joseph, that's a good tutorial, with enough information to have e a go yourself, even to using a whole strip of solder to flood the joints. The only thing that bothers me is that from past experience, bending the billet into a ring and tapping it on a mandrel, would normally crack it up. Dennis.

    I agree, must be a very rainy day with deep depressions and the weather forcast say´s it will last at least for three weeks....
    But I also agree that its´s a very nice technique to try once, I think he is using much solder because to be sure not missing a spot and filing away what´s to much, but it looks weard.

    I did a simpler contrasting metal design on a course once, and I clearly remember the phrase 'Flood it with solder'. The ring was cut out to size with a saw, but the person who tried to tap it on a triblet shattered theirs. Dennis.
