Re: [BKARTS] Srrvice/Foundry type



Service type is a slightly different alloy, allowing more heat to be used before it would become too soft, like foundry type.  It works in a pinch, but it tends to be have a more course finish than brass type.  You can polish it before use but it's soft enough where excess polishing will reduce the original height of the type.
