No tires bearing the Goodyear name,not even

He has them.

HERE'S HOW IT'S DONE.
Imagine a torch flame so hot that it will melt
steel, iron, brass or any metal easily and quick
ly and hold k at a liquid state.
The Oxy-Acetylene flame, 6300° Fahrenheit in
temperature does this—by playing this flame
on the edges of a broken part, bo Yv edges are
brought to a liquid state and enoug new met al
added to build up the crack or defect. Thus
the two pieces of metal are not merely cement
ed together—the metal flows together and
fuses into one solid piece. In many cases the
weld is the strongest section of the part.
