looks like BRAZING to me... same can be done with a propane torch and some durafix or alumaweld


not wet out action with basemetal that happens with a good weldor with a set of A&O torches... or with a DC capable arcwelder or a AC capable Tig

For the Cost I'd Just pick up Tig welder to do Aluminum. Such as the Everlast. Or a Good used Lincoln or Miller. Even Hobart makes a Tig Welder that is around the same price range. FYI $1995 is what they are asking online for it and that does not include consumables.

Many ThankYous DtD.

I'm considering purchasing a Multiplaz. I've O2 - c2h2 brazed for years and I wish the MP was available way back.

I do want to get a few more referals tho.

I might mention ... the safety issue isn't being discussed. I just had an acquaintance have his regulator malfunction and his c2h2 tank exploded. Nearly killed him. He won't be welding again ...

Thank you again for the Al YouTube.

Well as I said- with its cost of $1995 and having specail consumables that you can't get from any old welding supplier. I'd go for something like this: http://compare.ebay.com/like/320824877306?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar

The consumables are available via local welding shops. And Tig welding will allow the same multi-process welding that the Multiplaz does and from watching Youtube it is simaler to Brazing and soldering.
