This is the Alumiweld product:
Does this stuff look like it would work on a bicycle frame.
Another competing product:
I doubt it. It's a solder process, so I wonder if you could do a practical fillet with it. There were home recipees for this kind of thing in the mechanics journals in the old days. I have one somewhere. I guess you could try and see if you could make a rack or something. I think the issue you have to deal with is even if it's in the ballpark, that doesn't mean it is right for the very stiff oversized tubings that are typical in aluminum frames. Maybe it's strong enough for something but what does that something look like?
