I decided to try some aluminum brazing / soldering tonight. Here is my first try at it.

I was going to start by filling in a hole I made in this can. Take note of my super awesome hammer.

I ended up blowing right through the can before I could even try and braze it. :weld:

Next I moved on to some aluminum angle I had that had a notch cut out of it. I cleaned it with a stainless steel wire wheel before starting.

This is after I was done filling with aluminum.

This is after I ground it down smooth with a angle grinder.

Pink has a premium tacked on so it's $75.
