Sil bronze is pretty popular in bodywork too. BMW body splices must be done this way. They have pulse mig for it.

oddly the LWS don't have the rod on hand and have to order it and all the little special charges they ad to it makes it pricy

A lifetime ago, I was working in a shipyard upgrading systems with 70-30 NiCu welded tubing. Tig brazing was the ordered process. Had to be very careful to not let the interpass temperature get out of hand. The heat affected zone width was specified and cause for rejection if exceeded.

I can't recall the spec'ed filler rod, but when I ran out, late in the shift, I proved that garden variety brazing rod was NOT an acceptable substitute...

I haven't thought about this process in years, but the next time I need to join hard steel to softer base metals, I'm gonna fire up old Dialarc and have at it, one more time.

I'm going to bit the bullet on this and get some ordered prolly on line
maybe it wont have all the little extra charges added to the price last time I bought a box of rod there was a fill charge tax or some crap like that I didn't notice till after the fact and when I asked about what this charge was it had something to do with some fee not a actual gas fill charge was only a few cents but all those charges depend on what you buy to how much they are
an I'm sure those charges have been on more than a few welding items I've bought just never looked at anything on the invoice but the total before

I still use coat hangers what's wrong with that? One day I used barbed wire because that's all I had.

Just use stainless or mild steel filler, or I guess you could use barbed wire if that's all you have.

It's for a project and it's what the customer requires.... and I have suggested other methods but he is adamant...

I have used it in the past when trying to make a contrast between steels and the joints..

Today there are still people making brazed framed bicycles for fun and sale..

My problem with it is I haven't brazed anything in so long I need to practice a little or a lot being he wants it TIG brazed
last thing I braze welded was that broken collar for the drill press but that was more like a braze muddle puddling and didn't matter how it looked

So I am a bit apprehensive abut TIG Brazing So I guess once I get the filer rod in I'll have to practice an practice till I get it rite an I may be over thinking it as I can TIG weld Stainless an aluminum but some how get the notion the brazing is gonna be a PINTA..
