Smith's Little Torch
« on: October 26, 2017, 01:35:37 AM »

I'm looking to braze (not weld) a 1/16" thick x 2" x 1" piece of aluminum bar to 1/16" thick aluminum sheet.  So.. not a huge work space.   Among my tools, I have a Smiths Little Torch that I have used in the past for silver work.  Will the standard tips put out enough heat to do this sort of work?
