How did you first start? Did a course? Or just picked up a torch and gave gluing some metal together a go?
Bought a load of shit tubes and made numerous terrible bikes for myself and friends. I never paid attention to anything at school so had very little hope that I'd learn anything on a course ;)
Great, whats easiest to start practicing, lugs or fillets?
And as mentioned in the other thread. For home novice practice, a Mapp torch is ok for silver brazing but not brass, and silver is a bit harder to get right, that correct?
What would you suggest to cheaply give it a bash? Not bothered with jigs and angles, just want to actually join two chunks of metal together
Some sort of torch, gas, brazing rod, flux. That it? (in materials, exc safety equipment)
