I am going to correct you and I hope you don't take it wrong.<br>
Soldering is any thing up to 800F (or some thing like that)<br>
Brazing as anything over 800F to 1200F (?) <br>
Welding is over 1300F<br>
It has nothing to do with the filler type as I can weld a36 steel with 309 stainless filler <br>
and a flux coated bronze rod and a torch sounds like brazing to me<br>
<br><br>IO have just begun to look for bronze brazing/welding rods on the internet. There are many. I will list only one here because it is near local to me and I have the toll free number (1-800-533-3177), Alcam Inc. Charleston, South Carolina. They list 4 different rods with their technical/use description. Hope this helps.
I used some electrodes to weld bronze many years ago, say back in the mid to late 70's. I don't remember who manufactured them or any info on the electrodes. What I do remember and remember it very well was the smoke coming off them contained cyanide which can be veary deadly. Make sure you have a well ventilated area or a good fume extractor!
