  • I use the 56% off ceeway. I like it, Ive been using a bunch of life and a bit of spirit recently, fairly thin stuff, nice to keep the heat down. I only do braze ons anyway so nothing massively load bearing.

  • Yeah the lower melt point was making me think it might be easier with lugs, tidier shore lines, that kinda thing.

    You don't know how much that one is per rod do you? Wondering if the higher silver content makes it a lot more expensive.

  • Its not that cheap, i think around £7.50 per rod. I'm very sparing with it haha.

  • Ooft yeah, the no39 stuff is £4.69 a rod. And I tend to be less sparing with it that I mean to be! Maybe I should buy the dearer stuff and it'll force me to control it better!

  • wow yeah 39 is way cheaper!

  • Which type of silver are people tending to use?

    System 48 and Fillet Pro from Cycle Design. The System 48 flows like water and is perfect for lugs and braze-ons. Fillet Pro, as the name suggests, is great for fillet brazing with silver and for filling big gaps. It's amazingly forgiving to use, and resists overheating nearly as well as bronze filler. They're a bit Rapha - nice but pricey - but I'm really not tempted to try anything else when it comes to silver brazing.

  • Fillet brazing with silver seems like it'd be an astronomically expensive undertaking.

  • You're not wrong. This was all done in silver. Plenty money ended up on the floor in very fine particles.
