Default Re: Weld? or Braze?

Tig welding is perhaps the best way if.....if...... the welder really knows what they are doing. Brazing is perfectly acceptable too.
The problem arises when the base metal becomes brittle directly around the weld bead.
Tig welding done properly will nearly eliminate this problem.
Brazing done properly will not get the base metal hot enough to cause this problem.
