Re: Silicon bronze sheet?

mostly whats mentioned here seems to be a brass rather than a purer bronze... too much zinc as Ries states is a bugger to weld but with gas braze, standard brass rod, small tip [mostly i use a 3-5]and an oxidizing flame, work hot as if tigging with a borax flux, careful not to lose it from over heating. this i have only used for castings, building up and hole filling rather than line joining but it seems to work where TIG dosnt.
