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.

    Only 2 rods and they do not work anyway
    There are only 2 rods in here. I could not get them to melt with aluminum. The tent poles fell apart before these rods started to melt. Total waste of time and Money. I found another way to fix the poles. Aluminum is tough and the metal was thin, but these have zero value.

      Works great for light duty repairs on smaller aluminum parts...
      Works great for light duty repairs on smaller aluminum parts (doesn't work on pot metal, zinc alloy). Melts and flows very nice at around 750 F. Very strong bond, but not as strong as aluminum welding, so don't recommend for structural or mission-critical repairs. Larger workpieces need extensive pre heating for proper application though. Recommend MAPP has or large propane torch for larger pieces.
