Joining metal by soft or hard soldering, or brazing with alloys, is a common practice in welding and engineering workshops. But have you ever given thought to whether there could be quicker, more efficient, and less expensive methods? An extremely comprehensive book, Soldering and Brazing Handbook for Home Machinists thoroughly explains the processes, equipment, and materials, as well as what happens in the joints as they’re being made for an even deeper understanding. Featuring detailed sections on the characteristics of filler metals, brazing techniques, soft soldering techniques, capillary joint design, safety, and more, this must-have resource is extremely useful for anyone in the metalworking industry.
