That miracle brazing rod is crap if you ask me. By the time you figure it out you could have enough experience with a tig to get it done. If you have access to a spool gun mig welding aluminum isnít really that hard. People who never welded steel have a easier time starting with aluminum then the other way around in my experience. If you do weld steel forget what you learned and start over. Pull instead of push. Weave instead of building up with a mig. Pulse instead of keeping a fixed amperage with the tig. As the metal gets hotter go faster and back off the heat. As far as the brazing rod make sure your super clean and stainless wire brush one way to remove oxidation. Preheat as evenly as possible. Even then expect more of a welded look then anything mechanically sound.
