Great for boat prop repair
I used these to repair a broken boat prop and they work extremely well. Much cheaper than a new prop. I highly recommend these.. extremely easy to use.

Very useful for aluminum boat repair. Did what I needed it to. Best to get an extra pack or two because it takes practice to get it right.

Requires flux to work well, expensive for just two rods
If you use these rods by themselves, they will work, but they will not adhere to the aluminum very well. I did several tests and although the joint held without stress, I was able to break the test joint apart fairly easily with some pliers. The 'solder' produced by the rods just doesn't adhere well to the aluminum, no matter how well I brushed or cleaned the surface. After watching a YouTube video by a company that sells aluminum brazing flux and rods, I tried some powdered brazing flux with these rods to see if the flux helped. Massive improvement. The flux turned to liquid when the aluminum was hot enough, and when the brazing rod melted on the joint, the flux pulled it into the joint with capillary action. The resulting brazed joint had a smooth surface, like a smooth weld, and the solder flowed on both sides. The resulting joint using powdered flux was so strong that I was unable to tear it apart. The aluminum tore around the joint while the brazing held strong. So when used with flux, these rods produce a very strong joint. If you need to braze aluminum in a pinch and can't wait to for flux and more economical rods to arrive in the mail, these rods will work, but not very well. I highly recommend getting some aluminum brazing flux, as it makes a huge difference. While these only costs $4, $2 per brazing rod is quite expensive, so if you are going to the effort of getting some brazing flux, you can also get a pack of a few dozen rods from the same source for just a few dollars more.

No thanks
I wrote an e-mail to the company that produces this product, and I did so on their own internet form. My question had to deal with quality control and flux issues with these rods. I got no reply. I then wrote a paper letter about my concerns, including about the earlier lack of company response to my e-mall. I got no response to that, either. Companies need to stand behind their products, and part of that means customer service assistance. Therefore, I strongly recommend that shoppers use other companies' brazing and welding products. Many of them are just as good and some superior. I do not know as of this moment if Home Depot sells alternatives, but the internet has other suppliers. I buy from a couple of t hem, but only picked up this brand at Home Depot because it was convenient when I was there buying other products.. Bernzomatic's bad customer service very likely applies to other of their products as well. Thank you.
