Gas Welding Aluminum 2.1, “The Difficult” (2 DVD set)

In that first film I deliberately avoided the higher-strength alloys along with brazing and soldering. I wanted to keep that film short and to a specific point: teaching people to gas weld aluminum and with a minimum of fuss. Now, after these ensuing years, it is time to delve into the more complex aspects of this science/art. - More Info -
