My husband is making some barbecue tools where he is joining brass handles to stainless steel. What is
your recommended method of joining?
The Tinman Respondeth:
I think you will get both high strength and good appearance with a high (25% or greater) hard (high temp,
1100F) silver solder. Use a good flux, and make sure the metals remain bright and silvery during the
heating process, as overheating will kill the brightness and hence ruin the silver. Use a large tip,
and a soft (quiet) feathery (carbeurizing) flame.
