  • aluminum welding/brazing/soldering??

    Ok, I'm not crazy, I swear it. I was flipping through channels over the holidays and saw a infomercial (kind of, it was more like a product demonstration video you get when you buy a product) for something I should have bought on the spot.

    We all know it is very difficult to weld alumnium, but I saw an advertisment for something that was like solder for aluminum. They would heat the alumnimum to be repaired up with a normal propane torch and then touch it with a rod of this stuff which would instantly melt like solder. After cooling, it could be drilled, sanded etc. I thought the product was called "alumaweld" but all I can find on google is alumaweld boats.

    Has anyone ever heard of something like this? I have a couple of cracks in the aluminum case I built that I would like to fill.

    Thanks in advance!

      Yeah! That is the stuff! Thanks! Too bad it is so expensive, but I guess I'll get some sometime soon.
