PRLog - Jan. 25, 2014 - VISALIA, Calif. -- The review demonstrates repairing the wire-metal shroud of a miniature vintage fan using an electroplating and soldering technique. Typically the repair of such small joints by welding or brazing would risk further damage. However, by first building a thick layer of copper using an acid-copper electroplating solution then, silver soldering the broken pieces together repairs are accomplished with ease and without risk of further damage.
The products performed flawlessly and the vintage fan restored in the article now appears show-room fresh.
