    Cool Small alum repair.

    Usually when i get alum jobs they are the ones everyone else in town passes up. This shop called me and said you will like this job. No problem for me. Its a screen door frame for a travel trailer. The round channel pulled out where the hinge was. So i cut some 3/8" alum bar and counterbored a bushing hole in one end. Then i modified some hardware store bushings on my lathe. Then beat the new tube/bar stock into the channel and tacked it with my spoolgun. The frame is only like 1/16" thick so i had to watch it didn't burn away. Tacks will hold it as its in the channel and really can't go anyplace...Bob
