Re: What Filler for lead keel scrapes
I have done it, with tinmans solder. My Velocette Venom had a dent in the petrol tank when I bought it. After completely eliminating all petrol and vapour I stripped the enamel, roughed the bare metal with coarse emery, fluxed it and heated it with a blowlamp until the solder would melt on it, fill the dent and form a pool which surface tension raised up above the surrounding surface. After it cooled I filed and sanded it to the right profile.
That would not be practical on a lead keel as there is far too much metal to heat, so epoxy filler is the way to gto.
