Default Re: Brass Tubing Exhaust?

Aside from problems working it initially, it seems to me that the repeated heating/cooling process would make the tube very brittle, just as copper. Possibly worse!

Duh... now that I actually try to think about it, shell casings for my rifles split and crack after just a few cycles. Of course that's more heat, and pressure, but a cycle engine is going to introduce a lot of vibration into the mix...

Gosh brass pipes would LOOK neato, though! :-)
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
