I've seen similar before. Being marketed as Alumaloy. Ebay sellers seem to reference both names... I wonder if any are legit.

I've always been tempted to try it.

Damn. Now all I need is some of that rod, a torch that'll heat up aluminum to 730*, a beer gut, redneck accent, and a piece of aluminum to weld.

I have a steel gas tank that I would love to use something like that on. The only problem is I don't know where to get something like that for steel.

Seems really cool, but I've never had a huge hole in anything aluminum.

This. Someone try to make a custom manifold using this stuff.

As well as putting mounting brackets on an intercooler itself.

**** does not like to be drilled at all. Its neat stuff, but its low melting point would be its downfall.

A spool gun would help, but just running a new liner and keeping the feed as straight as possible yielded "ok" results and not too many birdsnests.

I really want to give this a try someday soon.


Anyway, I have a bundle of this aluminum braizing rod in the garage. I really should test this out one of these days. My buddy has an acetylene torch I can use which will get anything hot enough. My other buddy has 10-12 cracked E30 oil pans that would be neat to try and fix with this stuff.

I looked it up and it was $2 per rod (I think you had to buy $50 worth).

I need something like this that will work on steel. I have a bike gas tank that needs repaired.

My friend had one repaired locally for his 68' 2002 and said they soldered it. I'm sure its a special solder but call a radiator shop and ask them what they use.
