    Have tried 4 part stores,2 welding shops, TSC with no luck. Looking for a 5/32 Brazing rod and/or any 5/32 brass rods to make some shear pins. Will come pick them up anywhere close to Circleville or Columbus. Thanks!

    did you check a hardware store and see what size a mower uses? They have one on most fly wheels and dont run much.

    Viper1 I tried a couple and no such like, who would have thought it would be so tough to get a couple shear pins!

    Have you tried Orihood Boat over at Pancoastburg that shear pin may be metric the one on my little 1.2 hp motor was until we drilled it out to 3/32 of an inch. You could open yours to 3/16 of an inch. Might be easier to find a 3/16 rod. You might check the Smoke Stack hobby shop in Lancaster they have different pieces of brass for hobby work. Just a thought.
