Just a little "taste" if you will of the Maytag upright repairs

I have seen and heard of JB Weld being employed for this fix in several GEM stories, but at this shop it got the pink slip and good old brazing comes into use. Not bragging about using my old faithful (torch rig) but got to love some heat.

Thats great! You know if you want you could put that in the fixer upper group i made. Anyone's welcome to it but always put the outcome of a fix too on there aswell. Im sure there more like me that like to see the before, during, and outcome of something, not just a rusty or broken part.
