I’ll stick my oar in and definitely agree with “dumdum” . The key to start is , prepare all parts and tools close at hand. Patience, and cleanliness! Take your time and clean the two parts to be joined. “Tin” the two faces, (a very thin application of the joining medium). Your heat source should be at the minimum temperature required to make the medium “run” (be molten), use whatever tools needed to hold the two parts together. Make sure that the tools to hold the parts are not too large or cumbersome as to act as a heat sink when you re apply the torch the the area to be joined, (that will cause an automatic reαcation to raise the temperature, NOT GOOD!). You may have to add a minute amount of the joining medium at this time. Practice makes perfect! All the best, D.J.
