How do you anneal copper? Is it the same as brass, heat and quench?

No chahge. Had me curious too.

I learnt how to anneal aluminum by accident. Channel surfing one night, happened by that obnoxious Jesse James murdersickel show. Normally, I wouldn't watch that big-mouthed jerk if ya held a gun to my head, but he was doing some NEAT stuff with aluminum and an "english wheel" shaping a tank. He annealed the aluminum by heating it with a really dirty oxy-acetylene flame, so fuel-rich that it left a coat of soot all over the aluminum. After he did that, he could bend 1/8th inch aluminum plate by hand.

Got me some wicked curious, so I went out to the shop and tried it. Worked some old slick. Heated up a piece of 1/8" about 1" wide and 6" long and then formed it into a bracket to go around a 1" handlebar tube. Wouldn'ta believed it if I hadden'ta done it myself.

Two of my grandsons are fascinated by the American Chopper/Orange County Choppers show.

I asked them if they really think anybody would stay in business with all that bickering all the time, or if it's just BS for the camera.

And if it's BS for the camera, whatinhell is so entertaining about it? And they build ugly bikes too...

I never knew there was ANY educational value to that show!
