Default Re: Aluminum Brazing

I have ised the aluma weld rods and they do a good job if used right, I have used propane and mapp gas with good results.

One of the very important things is clean area to be welded, use a wood handled stainless wire brush, acetone or methylene chloride to clean surface real good and never put direct heat on rod.

once the alumi weld is totally bonded to the aluminum it is some very tough and durable stuff.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
