Door fell off of cold smoker attachment
« on: April 15, 2019, 04:52:49 pm »
I was out cleaning up the deck, BBQ and Bradly today getting ready to cold smoke some eggs to pickle, I went to attach my cold smoker attachment and the door fell off of it. Looks like it was just cheap aluminum rivets on it, so I am just going to replace them with some stainless steel rivets I have laying around from when I was running my race car unless someone has a better idea? Has this happened to anyone before?

I have two Bradley cold smoke attachments one about a year old and another a few years old possibly one of the earliest made? However I live close to the sea and have got in to the habit of giving the hinge assembly a spray with WD40 or similar a couple of times a year to try and protect against moisture ingress.... just checked and both seem fine. Thanks Bear helpful information.

WD40 is good  BUT have you ever tried Dow Corning 111?    Best stuff I ever used to keep metal from rusting or corrosion

Used it on cars and boats never fails. Just a lite coat and your good for a long time

Water rpoof thats for sure ;)    I would use it a lot on car bushings during the winter when they would squeek.  Once I put 111 on they never made anymore noise for the rest of the cars life  :D 

Great for rubber bushngs, pivot points, slides mech's  (tow truck drivers used it on their sliding beds)   only thing it's not good for is running inside a motor  ;D ;D ;D ;D
