Indeed it is quite expensive, thats why I haven't yet bought me such a brazing set. But I might get one one day. No problem, I can understand you. English is also not my first language.

I tried to weld my first chassis with electrodes, but they consume the steel if the current is not good regulated so I learned to braze.
Also I can try to weld steel with torch...
but I nedd bigger torch



Oh, You're from Austria just...600km from me

That's true. Once one 4mm steel rod just been eaten up because the current was a bit too high Also the distance between the rod and the metal does matter alot. I think you can weld with torch, but need other rods and I think more heat. Not sure though.

Yes, I am from Austria, so you live close to Perugia?

Well, as you are able to braze, I would go ahead with brazing instead of welding. I reckon brazing is much easier when it comes to tube chassis.

I see. I thought because you said 600 km from Vienna, it must be somewhere near to Perugia. Alessandria is about 900 ? km. Anyway we are somewhat neighbours

oh yes, brazing is easier in smallest things, and when brazing you must heat less the parts to braze, and they deform less

Hi to you too, almost-neighbour

Maybe I'll start one day and buy me a brazing set. But I don't know what brazing equipment is good enough, what gas and what rods I need for brazing brass or steel. Especially for smaller parts I'd like to braze.

This thing is getting better n better everytime I see it. I've also been following along on TC with the updates of it. The entire thing is AWESOME, and really love the tire wheel combo as well. I've seen quite a bit of sandrail builds and for some reason the front ends of all of em look quite off to being scale with a full size one. However yours seems to be spot on.

Hi Friends
I have somepics of my brazing equipment
Excuse me, I'm late but I haven't a lot of time so I go in my "laboratory" only a day for week , and my photo-camera is always discharged

here the pics

my laboratory


here are the cylinders and the brazing torch


and here the Castolin sticks

these sticks are white and they need less heat to braze
yellow sticks need more heat but the braze is more solid

I wish my post was useful for you

Yeah, you're right... still I am too busy for the Sandrail. I'm sorry. I just got my 4 racing seats in the meanwhile. Have to contact the engineer for the steering system. Then I can go ahead a little.
