Lesson to the wise.

Live like us down home poor folk...…………………...no exotic metals on this place. All mild steel

Good example on the job though...………….you nailed it.

A gap is a gap, and brazing is one of two things...…...it's either the capillary thing that the know nothings talk about, or it's actually more like traditional welding. Capillary brazing is more suited to pipes and such. (IMHO)

In the world of get-it-done, and make-it-work...………...you "weld".

Brazing vs. Welding...……...There's a place for both. But...…..if you need to preserve the integrity of a part, you braze. Welding is destructive. If you need to fuse...…..you weld. A brazed joint is bonded, a welded joint is fused. Both have their place.

It's all relative. Silver solder will hold your cutting torch together for a lifetime. A weld will hold the bridge under your feet together for a few decades. A rivet will hold it together for a century. And stone will be here when we're all dust.
