2005 yamaha sx230 boat center window hinge pin need to be replace

Normally everything for Marine use is Stainless Steel. Iron rusts away too quickly!
Take the hinge off the boat and drill the old pin out. Fit a new pin. Stainless welding rod is possibly the correct size if you cannot fins a stainless pin.

Stainless Steel 316 Pipe

Stainless steel type 316 is part of a family of stainless steel alloys (304, 316, 904L). The 316 family is a group of austenitic stainless steels with superior corrosion resistance to Stainless Steel 304. This alloy is suitable for welding because it has a carbon content lower than 301 to 303 series alloys to avoid carbide precipitation in welding applications. The addition of molybdenum and a slightly higher nickel content make Stainless Steel 316 Pipe suitable for architectural applications in severe settings, from polluted marine environments to areas with sub-zero temperatures. Equipment in the chemical, food, paper, mining, pharmaceutical and petroleum industries often includes Stainless Steel 316.
Stainless Steel 316 pipe manufactured at Duplex Supply Inc. are long, hollow tubes that can be used for a number of purposes. They are an integral part of the piping systems. The first methods for producing steel pipe were introduced in the early 1800s, and they have steadily evolved into the modern processes we use today. Pipe systems around the world involve connections which are provided by fittings. Steel pipes are consumed in bulk and provide for onward transmission of liquids and gases. They can be connected to fittings by welding and the structure is supported by connection of flanges. Steel pipes available in two types: Seamless Steel Pipes and Welded Steel Pipes. For both types we first cast raw steel into a more workable starting form. We then make it into a pipe by stretching the steel out into a seamless tube or by forcing the edges together and sealing them with a weld.

Stainless Steel Flanges Manufacturers

Stainless steel flanges is an iron based metal. Stainless steel flanges are normally chosen for their high resistance to corrosion and its high-temperature strength. Although they are chosen for their resistance to corrosion does not mean they are immune to it. Stainless steel flanges also show other characteristics like ductility and toughness which should be taken into consideration. Different types of stainless steels show considerable variations depending on a combination of its chemical composition and the aggressiveness of the environment.We manufacture flanges from sizes ½" to 36? and in dimensions from 15mm to 600mm. Instinox being Stainless Steel Flanges Manufacturers provides you with best quality & services

What is the difference between a fresh and salt water trolling motor and will this last in a salt water environment

Salt water motor has more stainless parts (vs steel or other metal that will corrode). They usually have better quality internal parts as well. The connections in the head unit will corrode over time from being in salt environment. If you will be in salt environment it is worth the increase in price.

What is the difference between mild steel and stainless steel? Which is more stronger?

Stainless steel is stronger. It has a mix of other metals like chromium and vanadium which makes it stainless and generally more rustproof.

Mild steel is cheaper and is also known as high carbon steel. This is a softer steel and rusts very easily.

SAF 2507 instrumentation fitting

Super duplex is a grade that was developed over 70 years ago to be used in the sulfite paper industry. This grade came to be known as super duplex because of its mixed microstructure of about equal parts of ferrite and austenite.Super duplex tube fittings are manufactured to especially fight extreme corrosion problems which occur due to exposition to chloride bearing cooling waters and other aggressive chemical process fluids. Super duplex tube fittings have an extremely high mechanical strength which is one of the reasons that has made it ideal for use in onshore and offshore environments in oil and gas applications. These tube fittings not only have a high resistance to pitting, but also have an outstanding resistance to stress corrosion cracking at moderate temperatures. All Super duplex tube fittings also have an extremely high tensile strength compared to that of conventional austenitic stainless steels.
Super Duplex tube fittings are used in the following industries:
·Flowline pipe / line pipe
·Riser tubes
·Manifold piping
·Christmas tree piping
·Hydraulic lines for drilling risers
·Offshore oil and gas exploration and production.
·In heat exchangers in petrochemical and chemical processing.
The grade is also suitable for instrumentation applications in tropical marine environments
still we are not aware of it

What's a stainless steel?

Stainless steel does not stain, corrode, or rust as easily as ordinary steel (it stains less), but it is not stain-proof. There are different grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment to which the material will be subjected in its lifetime. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and is available in different forms, a stainless steel often used in knives pots and kitchen accessories.

How to install a fire extinguisher on side of fiberglass center console compartment?

Use a pencil to mark the holes for the extinguisher mounting bracket. After marking the holes,apply smal pieces of masking tape over the holes. This will prevent the Gel coat from chipping while drilling the holes for mounting the screws. If the side of the compartment is thick enough, you can use self taping screws. If there is access to the other side thru an access port, you can use machine screws and lock nuts to secure it. Keep in mind that you will want to use a 316 stainless steel fastener, and also apply a marine silicone in the holes before screwing the fasteners in place. 18-8 stainless will corrode/rust overtime, especially in a saltwater environment.

Hook up oven door on maytag gas range

You likely need to lock the hinge in open position to do it. Either there is a small lever on the hinge itself you need to flip when the hinge is in the open position or there is a hole in the hinge, where you need to insert a steel pin (you can use screws, but they bend somewhat ;)) to hold the hinge open

I am not sure about your oven model.  I had a similar problem in my oven.  The hinges are riveted to the oven and can be fixed.

First remove the oven door - normally the door slides on to two prongs on either side and is screwed down.


Once the door is removed check the mechanism that holds the two prongs to the oven body.  Mine were held with stainless steel rivets that had worn out and became wobbly.  Cut the rivets and replace them with new ones.  You can get a rivet driver and the stainless steel rivets for under $20 at Home Depot. 


Hope this works for you.
