|Thread: Help with this spline|
Another thing just struck me, "shear pin" do Deckel's not have a shear pin in the feed system ? it might be worth checking in case someone has replaced it with a too hard pin.
If the damage was caused as in the description above it might be worth making it in a "standard steel" so that if it happens again the shaft remains sacrificial. It'll be easier to make that shaft than get a new quill.
There are a lot of FP1 owners on PM who could probably give you the exact dimensions and spline type.

|Thread: Silver soldering, I still don't get it.|
Hi Bill, I'm wondering if by your description you had it too hot, silver solder is a low-melting point joining compound. It could be that you had the parent metal too hot which means the solder efectively "boils" on contact forming the "ball" you described. Also brass being the lovely material its is oxidises faster the hotter it gets and also some of its constituent ingredients melt, mainly the zinc, and you get that horrible greyish smoke and "soot" on the job.
Again its only my experience, Good Luck !
