I would like to do brazing using TIG equipment instead of having to use
I don't want to use a torch because I do not want to have to deal with
tanks of oxygen and flammable gasses. Having a tank of nitrogen or other
inert gas is okay.
I was told that it is possible to get decent brazes using TIG equipment as long

for the shield could elminate the need for a flux.
I plan to braze dissimilar metals (aluminum to steel or to brass) for artwork
and jewelry. Nothing structural or requiring inspection and certification. I anticipate using metals up to about 1/8th or 3/16th inch thick maximum; most
thinner (1/32nd to 1/16th).
I am looking at the Dynasty series which can go down to about 1 amp.
Have any of you any experience brazing with TIG equipment instead of using
