I just ordered some tubing to start building racks and I ordered a bit of stainless to try out. I know I need silver brazing rod, but I don't know exactly what I need. I read that it needs to have nickel in it to stop the stainless from corroding. I also read I can use nickel brazing rod without silver in it for stainless, but it has a much higher melting temperature. What would work better for small fillets, and where's the bet place to buy it from?
By reputation, anything from Fred ought to be tops. Is he back in the swing of things?
As far as the 45% goes, hit the right heat, and it self levels in a nice fillet inside and outside of the tube. It is even possible to get results with a propane Bernzomatic torch. Nothing I built during that stage has failed.
