    I am curious about the grade of aluminum. It says 3003. I wonder if this will work as well on other grades. I would like to know what he is using for flux and filler wire. It looks like this process is more foregiving than tiging thin aluminum.

    A member on another site seems to think the flux is borax dissolved in water. But he is going to do a little more research. Seems as I remember him using 1100-series Mig wire.

    For Aluminum brazing you can use Harris #10 powder flux or alsolder 500 liquid flux. Looks like Honey.( Alsolder 500 will solder aluminum to steel or brass and stainless. 500 degrees) Or if you want to do it the easy way. You can easily braze aluminum with an Aluminum stick rod. 3/32 for thin stuff and 1/8" for thicker. Treat it just like a regular brazing rod. You need to be careful like any aluminum welding but it is fairly easy. If you are not using 60 series aluminum, the best product would be AlCore Aluminum Solder. It's only about 3 degrees below braze temp so it's very strong and flows like mercury. I have about 50 tubs of it if any one wants one. Otherwise they are 10 bucks at the store. Only works on 1/2 the aluminums but the ones it works on, Nothing works better, Then there is CorAl Aluminum flux cored rods. And Welco 52 that you see at fairs, It's mostly zinc and it's best suited for fixing bullet holes in irrigation pipe. Don't ask me how I know.
