First you need to clean the two metals that you are joining together using a flux. You then place the brazing rod over where you are joining the metals and heat the brazing rod till it melts.

Brazing forms a very strong joint.

Soldering - this is a type of brazing that works at lower temperatures.

First you heat the component you want to solder. You then
