That will be the Triple Axle, not the gold plated toilet experience?

I'll get my coat.

Hi Steven,
Was your four wheeled audience impressed by your feat on two wheels?

Seriously, it's great that you stayed upright. I've done worse on two feet (as two broken wrists are testament)!!!

I was lucky Keith!
Result Les. Don't forget to heat them to cherry red and quench. I just use cheap builders silicone to "wet" all the surfaces before bolting up.

They do age harden so I suppose it depends how long ago it was done. They are only thin so go cheery red easy on the gas cooker provided your not being watched!

It wouldn't hurt to do them again. Copper does age harden.

Wellseal is my adhesive of choice.

.......think alike :D :D I've got very fond of silicone, especially the cheapest builders variety I can find. Ive used it around exhaust headers where are it must be as hot as it can possibly be and still seems nice and rubbery.
I've recently taken to use it when replacing the head gasket. My last decoke seems my most successful.
