    Bronze brazing electrodes are abundantly available

    Soldering is any thing up to 800F (or some thing like that)<br>
    Brazing as anything over 800F to 1200F (?) <br>
    Welding is over 1300F<br>
    It has nothing to do with the filler type as I can weld a36 steel with 309 stainless filler <br>
    and a flux coated bronze rod and a torch sounds like brazing to me<br>
    <br><br>IO have just begun to look for bronze brazing/welding rods on the internet. &nbsp;There are many. &nbsp;I will list only one here because it is near local to me and I have the toll free number (1-800-533-3177), Alcam Inc. Charleston, South Carolina. &nbsp;They list 4 different rods with their technical/use description. &nbsp;Hope this helps.

      That Storts history sounds very interesting.

      How large are their books and what do they cover?

        Same here. Ive allways said you learn something new everyday. I didn't know they welded lead.

        Time for a new thread on the subject with more pictures and descriptions what some of those items are used for.

        Thanks storts.

          I used some electrodes to weld bronze many years ago, say back in the mid to late 70's. I don't remember who manufactured them or any info on the electrodes. What I do remember and remember it very well was the smoke coming off them contained cyanide which can be veary deadly. Make sure you have a well ventilated area or a good fume extractor!
