Tig Brazing a Steel Cube

Today I’m doing a little work with silicon bronze. This is a part two video of that cube. I’m trying to make the cube look cool now, now that I’ve got a single tig pass in there with weld metal I’m going to buff it all down with a wire wheel so it’s shiny bright metal. That’s important when you’re using silicon bronze, to have nice clean bright metal to flow it over. But now I’m just trying to make it look cool so that somebody would want to use it for a paper weight, or a conversation piece, or whatever.

Welding lathe

Several years ago…sometime around 1993, I bought my first tig welder.

Around 1996, I got an order for 200 round parts.

The job paid pretty well but I didnt want to spend all my earnings on a turntable without knowing if I would use it often enough to pay for it. read more
