    thinner material will have a lower melting point right? are there rodes with a lower melting point as well?

    You don't need a flux? sweet! I doubt that there has ever been an instructional video on YouTube that hasn't drawn criticism except some fiddle playing videos. Now your a..hole watchers will search for these.

    What is the name of the clamps or vices used to hold the aluminum tubing in place?

    I've used this before. It's OK depending on the application. The hardest part can be getting the part to wet with the brazing rod. Fresh aluminum like here is easy.

    It is a shame that people cannot just enjoy a video without making an A** of themselves!

    What kind of clamps are you using?

    It's just soldering.

    Wow. I wonder why people buy TIG weldingmachines for ton of money….

    Maybe its because they actually weld and do not solder? but what do I know…

    The position of the clamps is very unprofessional and bad. They take the heat away. At least take some wood between for isolation.
    When amateurs make such videos, people only learn HOW NOT TO DO IT.

    it's same like soldering

    This is not a "weld" I assure you the strength is poor.  Perhaps ok for arts and crafts.

    This is not and I repeat not a weld, it is a soldered joint and not as strong as a weld!

  21. Anguinus Vir

    The joint is actually stronger than the aluminum. I've welded pop can together with the stuff that wouldn't break apart with a chisel. Yet you could rip the can with your hands

    hack jobs like this get people hurt when something doesn't hold up as it should

  23. tanpeke

    June 29, 2016 at 7:14 am

    that is not strong

  24. craig harper

    June 29, 2016 at 7:14 am

    i would be very interested to see a strength comparison between these brazed joints and similar joints done with jb weld.

    brazing I's shoddy at best

    that wasn't propane its mapp gas. Burns hotter then propane. using solder dosn't need to be all that hot.

    And to think I spent $4,000 on a TIG welder.

    you could use different joints to make this process a lot stronger.
