    Braze or Weld, How?

    I can't do either but want and need to learn how
    What is the difference between braze and welding ?

    Are there any good vids, dvds for a total beginner that explain from scratch ?

    Find a local college that does evening classes. Probably a new course starting after Easter.

    Usually under "Welding".
    Maybe under car maintenance, workshop skills etc. or maybe that particular college doesn't have the facilities.
    If you can't find one yourself, ring up your library. They will have all the info and are usually extremely helpful.

    Have you tried welding/brazing?
    Brazing is when the filler used to join the two pieces of metal together,only the filler is reached to melting point. Whereas in welding both the metal and filler are melted together.
    I bought myself a welder and taught myself using vids. I'm doing aluminium brazing at the moment,it requires patience in getting the correct heat on the metal

    Brazing is pretty easy to pick up, not that I bother brazing very often. I went to a local college to learn to weld years ago, to be honest it was crap, everyone wanted to Mig so I kept getting stuck with an arc set, obviously this could just be my local college no real advice or tuition given just stand in a booth and have a go. I've since got to a reasonably good level by just getting on with it, get a load of offcuts and have a go, in my experience it's learning to set the machine up that's difficult once you've mastered that it gets easier and easier. Saying that I still hate welding upside down and vertical can be tricky too, I usually spot weld and overlap them as I go, endup with a really neat looking weld and less distortion. Hope this helps
