School me on working on Brass.
I'm doing some custom mods right now to my first brass gun, a PGP2.
So far I've removed the top tube, but I would like to re-attach it in Phantom format, and strip all the paint, and then polish it.
Can anyone give me a list of the essential brass-workers tools?
The best thing I have found to get the paint off is airplane parts cleaner and steel wool. I tried a acetone bath and that didnt work well. As for the tubes idk about reattaching them. Here is a pic of my pgp I did with airplane stripper.
are you looking for something like this?
Airplane parts cleaner
mapp gas torch
flux w/ brushes
solder (usually i use that fat low-temp plumbing solder)
heavy beat metal background noise
Chplnstone is Much better at hot work than I, so I will let him take this over.
I am tremendously terrible at hot work, so this is all a learning experience for me.
Also, where abouts would I get paint stripper that is 'aircraft grade'?
Would I be ok using regular paint stripper?
autozone, and advanced auto carry aircraft stripper.
