Introduction to Brazing: APRIL
Sunday, April 14, 2013 at 2:00 PM - Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 4:30 PM (EDT)
Somerville, United States
Brazing is a uniquely useful metal joining process that allows for joining dissimilar metals and joining metals that could not otherwise be joined by welding. Learn about joint design, brazing technique, and practice joining dissimilar metals; join very thin steel (.010 thick!) to thick steel plates, and join thin walled steel tubes without welding. Even learn how to repair castings made from iron alloys with poor weldability!
Students will learn:
- How to join metals without welding
- How to join (some) dissimilar metals
- Safe operation of the oxygen/acetylene rig
I will provide materials including thin walled tubes, a small quantity of plate, shim stock, and castings. A $30 materials fee is included in the class price.
