7075, 7076... Whatever It Takes

  • Published on: 01 December 2019
  • Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.

    Trying not to sound to much of a smarty pants but could you not just put a bead of weld on the frame they sit against?Also,a "smidge" is a pretty inaccurate measurement - my dad always measured in gnats cock hairs. He'd be like "just move it a gnats cock hair to the left" etc.If something was a tight fit you could equate it to a gnats chuff apparently. Who knows what that is?!

    Why not just weld the bike instead?

    Could you have not have added weld material to the other side of the foot peg stop? The motorbike side?

    Would braising or soldering not be an option?

    I don't even know why I find your videos so addictive. The first and last time I used a lathe, about 40 years ago, I ended up in hospital, To this day the ring finger on my left hand is about 2mm shorter than the one on the right.

    Wait... couldn't you have welded something on the part of the frame where the pegs are pushing against the frame?

    So, since I'm kind of a scrap yard scrapper who welds "trash" into useful stuff, I'm gonna ask: is there actually something that will explode if welded AND how can I avoid the welding police?

    A new rod and method has been made to weld these materials. Just last year.

    7075 is a zinc aluminum alloy, zinc melts at a significantly lower temperature than aluminum and firms zinc oxide which is naturally slick, at the weld/parent metal junction you have this microscopic zinc oxide which is where the crack develops. Since the weld is in compression you may have a mechanical adhesion that will prevent the weld from falling off. If replacements were available you have to balance cost with benefit and I'll bet you did all that for about $2.00 an hour and you still have worn holes.

    So the Scorpa brand name is for a mechanical proctologist? Hoping the bike removal was not as painful as the pedal breaking insertion process was.
