Default Re: Welding on Big box store bikes?

If you have oxy-acetelyne to weld with try the silver brazing rods with the blue flux on them. You can buy them at Home Depot or most any hardware store. Brazing makes it easier to get a nice fillet to your weld and the silver rods are MONDO hard, VERY high tensile strength. Also, you'll never get the temp hot enough to burn through whatever you're brazing to. I use them all the time and have yet to have anything break off.
