® Wil­liam H. Dickinson, Manag­ing Bro­ker Lic. Real Es­tate Bro­ker, Ocean Reef Club Real Es­tate Com•any is An Equal O••or­tu­nity Com•any, Equal Hous­ing O••or­tu­nity. This ma­te­rial is based u•on in­for­ma­tion that we con­sider re­li­able, but be­cause it has been su••lied by third •arties, we can­not re•re­sent that it is ac­cu­rate or com•lete, and it should not be re­lied u•on as such. This of­fer­ing is sub­ject to er­rors, omis­sions, changes, in­clud­ing •rice, or with­drawal with­out no­tice. Of­fer not valid in some states.

I al­ways look for­ward to read­ing Steve Zim­mer­man’s Trou­bleshooter ar­ti­cles in Pas­sage­Maker. Full of use­ful and ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion, I have learned many things from him. I was sur­prised to read the drive train ar­ti­cle in which Steve gives the com­po­si­tion of bronze as cop­per and zinc. That is the al­loy for brass. Bronze is cop­per and tin, with a smat­ter­ing of other com­po­nents de­pend­ing on the use. Brass is not suit­able for un­der­wa­ter use such as props, shafts, screws, bolts, or any­thing else be­cause of its propen­sity to lose the zinc from its al­loy. I am sure Steve knows this and just mis-spoke.
