Do you need a life changing event to move on to a higher level of Geekery ?
If so, come learn how to Solder-Weld Aluminium at this Workshop.
Normally, expensive tools like TIG Welders are required to join Aluminium. That makes it a little dangerous and out of reach of most Hackers. That technology is clearly only in the realms of Metal-Working professionals.
I will present and demonstrate an alternate process. This process provides a weld that is harder than surrounding material just like TIG welding. But can be done at a lower temperature with a common Propane/Butane gas burner as found at Jaycar/Bunnings.
Yes, of course it's on youtube, and you could discover the hole process with lots of time and by trialing different products to get a process that will work for you. Or, just come along and spend one hour and be up and running.
This workshop will get straight to the point and give you the skills and sample of the product that you need to get started straight away. With Aluminium Solder/Welding you can do repairs or constructions in various sizes of Aluminium in a professional way.
I will then provide links at the end for further ordering of the consumables that I have found to work successfully.
Entry cost is $15 which simply covers the cost of some sample product. If you pay $20 that will provide a $5 Donation to MHV.
