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.
