"It's a research project now!"  Yes!

4 hours of hood time?  Wow, you are an expert welder compared to me.  Actually, I have about 8 hrs. in, but 4 of them were repairing/re-doing the welds I made in the first 4 hours...sigh. :embarassed:

I saw that! Thank you Gary, and thanks for looking in.

I have been pillar to post for the last month - all good stuff happily, but I still havenít got to try my little TIG brazing R and D project.

I did acquire a new welding table though.

Thanks Terry!

One of the other reasons for the experiment is that I am curious to see if I can control the metal build up well enough to consider TIG brazing as a means for boiler construction. Might be easier than trying to flow a whole bunch if tubes in one go.

Or it might be significantly more difficult. Worth a try though.
