  • Never TIG brazed a day in my life; always wanted to try it. Join me as I probably do a ton of stuff wrong!

    I know this is a way old vid and hope you see this post. I don't know if anyone has mentioned, back up on the arc length for brazing. Will give a bigger "heat effected zone" thus won't have to wash. Or use fancy pulse or anything 😜

    What brand of filler rod did you use? This is a good learning video. They way you present it with adjustments of machine and technique. Love it and thanks for taking your time and money to bring videos like this to us.

    So it's literally soldering, not welding.

    why no flux? I thought the flux helped work the bronze. or is that only with torch brazing?

    You know that there is a video of yours on in regards to the tig welder of yours... Also, the price of that thing... made me sick... Back in my day, you could buy a house with that kinda money... Much love

    I used this method to replace broken fins on some 1946 Harley knuckle heads, after grinding, shaping, blasting, and painting they looked like new.

    Great video as always, but I'm curious about the overall strength you achieved and is it functional.

    Having done soldering, silver soldering, silver brazing, etc, etc, etc, I can totaly agree about the difference between gas brazing and TIG brazing. For those not in the know, a properly fit up joint that is well cleaned, fluxed, and heated with the filler applied in the correct way and amount with a gas torch will result in fillets on both the outside and inside of the joint as well as the interface. The result is a weld that far exceeds the strength of the base metals in most cases. Think CrMo motorcycle and bicycle frames as a prime example. Some aircraft frames use this method as well. I have used silver solder to join parts to make custom hydraulic fittings even that held

    I've never brazed with my everlast tig welder before either but I keep seeing videos on it and want to give it a try.

    So I just started,watching your videos, and you give good information. I was wondering how you like your HPT machine, I just purchased a norstar,and it works pretty dam good ,but doesn't have pulse like your machine. I haven't tig welded for 35 years since I was in school, but arc and mig all the time so basically I'm learning all over again.

    I try keeping my rod in the shielding gas when I dab. I weld in the aerospace industry and let me tell you... They. Nitpick. Every. Small. Detail. But for good reason. Pulling out of the puddle but keeping it shielded keeps impurities off the tip of the rod. Love your channel.

    This is a lot like silver soldering with tig. It was full welding naval brass flanges to carbon steel pipe.
