Default brazing/soldering pot metal


I'm sure this has been covered a bunch of times already....

I fumbled my antique band saw getting it out if my truck. Of course it landed on the pully(wheel) and bent it to the point of cracking. I paid almost nothing for the saw and am willing to invest almost nothing to get it running. I am wondering if acid flux core solder might be worth trying. Whaddayathink?

thanks
Roswell Bob

Pot metal is a large class of zinc alloys; easy to cast, but not much for 'fabrication' by
welding or even rivetting. Get a new pulley, or take a chance on a miracle
solder https://www.amazon.com/Solder-Aluminum-Metal-Repair-0-25oz/dp/B000BUUTPU.

New pulley (if it's a DRIVE pulley, it doesn't need to be an exact match) seems best.

The load on the wheels may have to be many hundreds of pounds to make
the blade cut straight. Do you want to risk a failure when your
fingers are close to the cut?

Hell No! I cut my favorite thumb off the first time with a Ryobi table saw. The second time I cut it off was with a Ryobi miter saw. The second time wasn't so bad because the nerves were already gone. Those Ryobis are vicious.

I'm going to scrap saw.

Thanks for heads up.
