Soldering jig - Brian - 05-16-2013

So any excuse to by tools I got myself a miter jig.

Brian, neat "third member " device. Is that sliver soldering you're doing? What vintage is your camera? I have an old (I'm talking digital age old) Olympus D-550 Zoom.

Hi Steve & Ed yes its silver solder It has to be strong to take the glass. Also this cover has to be removed to wind the clock I.E. once a week.
So it will simply unhook.
The camera is a Olympus C350 Zoom

Nice job Brian.

Hope you don't burn all the paint off that pretty new fixture.

When adding the second frame I had to invert and support the Jig to stop it distorting the frame

Ready for polishing.

And tom it did not burn the paint. Just blued/ blackend my mods.

On the subject of the jigs we love, I picked this device up at a friend's estate sale (his Dad's estate).

First time I used it and I'll definitely be using it again. I put it around the 4 pieces and tightened it up, checked with a square and all 4 corners were 90°. Pretty slick.
I'll be using it for picture frames and any construction of squares or rectangles.
I won't mention any of the other stuff I picked up for fear of a You Suck.
Cool

Steve,

I have one of those and I'm wondering if it would be useful for welding? Chin
I got it for woodworking years ago.
