Default Re: Weld? or Braze?

I'm limited to having someone else do it for me at this time. I went into a local welding shop, and the man insisted that TIG welding was best, and that brazing was akin to solder, or before they started using TIG systems.
In the years past, when I had an old buzzbox and a set of tanks, I frequentley used brazing to build split exhaust manifolds for inline 6 bangers. Never had one fail. However, I have had welds fail.
In the early '60s, my first good paying job was welding high pressure steam pipe, using a torch and a filler rod.
