    Anyone used it? From the states supposed to solder zinc die cast. http://muggyweld.com/all-products/alloy-1

    My Acorn lathe has a broken casting made from Zamack which is a type of zinc die cast, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zamak. Its part of the saddle drive, thought before I try to fabricate a new bit I would try it. Youtube vids make it look easy, but we will see.

    I have used something very similar. My problem was getting enough heat into thick Ali. Very good when I did.

    According to the ad it melts at 350f, well below Zamacks melting temp, and its only a small part, so that shouldn't be a problem Brian.
