Hello Kent:  I am working on a project using #316 (not #136L) stainless tube; 1" dia. X .035" wall, and would like to learn how to butt weld the material. I do have some experence with silver brazing.
Do you have any training materal that would help me with stainless gas welding?
I may try using my own torch with your flux to start with, and also would like to purchase some filler rods for the above #316 material. Can you put together a kit for me? You have the best tech. site on gas welding I have ever found.  Thank You For Your Reply: Al Escalante

The Tinman Respondeth:

Al, Use the right flux . Use 316 rod. Set torch very slightly rich on acet. Flux rod, both sides of part, and weld. Good glasses are a big help.
