Does anybody have any words of wisdom for soldering galvanized steel wire (gauge 16) to 1/2 inch copper pipe (standard plumbing type)?
I am currently using:
- Bernzomatic pen torch (small flame torch)

I just found this site so I wanted to say Hi to everyone. My name is Kevin and I have been a welded steel artist for about 2 1/2 years.
It is great to finally find a place to hang out and learn from others in the same field.

My husband recently welded me a 4-legged soldering stand for use in jewelry making from standard steel bar. My challenge is that all the "hardware" cloth I've found to place over the frame-work either melts when heated from a propane torch or it coated in paint that makes terrible fumes. It also occasionally catches on fire (oh such wonderful fun in our basement workshop). So, what kind of mesh should I use that can withstand direct and prolonged heat from a propane torch?

Well like many metal enthusiasts before me, I am new to metal art and new to this site. My initial plan was to get into plasma cutting using a CNC table, but all my hard research is making my head spin. so I think I'm going to stick to freeform plasma cutting. I actually feel a bit better about that and think that I can be more creative (although don't get me wrong, when I see the lovely signs, gates, and other images that are done on a cnc table I still would love to have one, it's just that the cost isn't for me at this time.)
mele miller - Thursday, November 15, 2007 - 8:06pmbrazing | repair | welding
So I got a new torch and I want to try my hand at brazing (I have only MIG welded everything). I have an old ornamental piece from the top of a chimney that I have displayed in my living room. During the removal it broke in several places. I would like to try brazing to put it back together. I thought I could do this just on the back. How do I have to clean it? Do I need to grind any rust or just brush it and clean with something.What kind of brazing rod do I use? Any helpful tips would be very helpful.
