    Unless he is talking "silver soldering".
    Not holding my breath.

    New ones are expensive.

    Machine shop said cleaning the brazing could take a ton of time.

    $250 plus shipping time to buy a new one.
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.
    Don't know why I'm question-mark challenged online. 😀 New Year's Resolution, better proof reading.

    Braze is pretty strong. Vibration kill it? How much would it cost to braze again? It lasted quite a long time.

    Return port crack or something?
    There are but two seasons. Winter, and preparing for winter.

    Not a stunning success, but it functions. Issue I have is rope lay on the bollard. Tends to bunch up. May be a tapered bollard, or a rounded thread groove on the bollard to lay the rope. I'll have to check my lathe if it will do 2TPI.

    Did you roughen up the bollard surface? If so, it might be grabbing too much to let the wraps slide up. If you look at Armstrong winches (sailboat ones) they go so far as to cut vertical slots to increase friction but still allow the rope to slide up. The old school capstans on sailing vessels also used the same thing for friction.

    I didn't rough it up any. It is straight. May be I need a taper to the bollard? Go from big to smaller?

    Great work Peter even if it’s not working quite as hoped. Trial and error. Maybe someone would be kind enough to show a close up pic of the grcs bollard? I’m sure you can come close.

    Had a weird day. Sent out to an “emergency” job for the county. 90’ from the road and wet as can be. It was climbable, but not in the time frame. I told them I had to go back to get plywood or drive a half mile to buy new. Either way they were buying it. Nope, they offered to drag the trucks in with an excavator and stay till we were done, plus clean the mud off of the road. They left at 2. At 3 pm I had to borrow their excavator with out permission to drag everything back out. We cleaned the road off even though we were told they would ( hard to do when they left at 2). The place is a mess. Glad they saved $400 in plywood so I can charge them for 3 hours of overtime for the crew plus the extra restoration they’re gonna have. I now know where my tax dollars are spent
