Tapered Ramrod tip
« on: October 27, 2012, 06:24:08 PM »
I have tried making a tapered ramrod tip using sheet metal and soldering the joint together, but when I went to tap the end it always wants to split the solder joint apart. Any advice or tutorial on this?

You need to braze the joint.  Solder won't hold.
