Late last night I fit a donor tip top on Frank, fit nice but the hoop was a little off so I carefully took some pliers to correct it....broke off the brittle hoop! ! Dumb ass, should've left it alone, lost a little sleep. So....this morning coffee cup in hand, went out to the shop to fix it, dumped my bottle of flux while soldering.... After a couple of tries, the tip top doesn't look too bad...G.E. (good enough) just another scar. Give my creation life!!
