Abstract

During the course of multiple heat treatments, the brazed joint between a pin and a substrate may collapse so that the joint is weakened and the product must be scrapped. Disclosed herein is a method for repairing a collapsed pin joint by positioning a washer element about the pin head, and heating to melt and reflow the washer.
