I need to add some bits to a steel frame (disc tabs, cable guides, mech hanger) and thought this might be a good option. TIG welding those parts would be fine, also, and I've not got a oxy setup for brazing, but was just wondering if anyone would advise or discourage TIG brazing.
Reading up a bit, it seems OK for small parts but not for structural stuff because the arc is too directional and the filler metal won't wet out into a joint between two tubes, for example.
Seems to work OK on titanium frames where brazing isn't an option.
you mean oxy brazing specifically?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
