practicing with stainless

hey there, so i am doing a little practice with stainless tubing but have some questions. Im not sure if I still need some more practice or not but I cant get the silver to flow all the way on my sleaved joints. The tubes I have are fitted tubes, so i wasnt sure if that could be effecting the silver flow or not... I can get bronze to flow on cromo pretty easy and i know silver and stainless is harder, Im just trying to figure out if Im on the right track...

So it should be flux, heat or gap. Do you have the required flux? does it wet on the surface of the SS which would be a measure of heat and flux, can you make a fillet. And do you have a gap around 4 thou?

There is also technique stuff, but if you are flowing bronze you presumably know how to draw the braze around and not work yourself into dead ends.
