These pics come from a new aerospace test facility that they are constructing at the University of Notre Dame. The SSF-6 is working great.
I am attempting to make all of these fittings air tight as they are used for pressure measurements. We can¹t have any leaks. I had very little warpage of my base metal and I think this is really going to work out very well.

Using SSQ6 Silver Solder Paste
For best results, clean your work area and make sure that everything's in order before you begin soldering. Next, clamp the silver parts that require soldering together into a vise. Make sure to position the ends so there are no gaps. Silver powdered solder can't fill in gaps but will flow around the joint to fuse the parts, so make sure that you get a good fit for optimum results.
Next, apply SSQ6 to the joint. The amount of solder used should only be equal to the thickness of the wire or sheet you're working on. Then, light the torch and position the flame so that both sides are heated equally.
In some instances where the melting point is too low for the torch temperature, solder can flow away from the joint before the parts you're working on can fuse. Thankfully, SSQ6 has a melting point of 1050º and has a tensile strength up to 85,000 PSI, which is almost 18 times the strength of regular solders.

We are solver brazing cupre nickel together using SSQ-6 silver solder from muggyweld.com. A propane torch was used on the two pieces of copper nickel, one tube was flared so the other could be inserted for tight fit.
Muggy Weld SSQ-6 is simple to use on brass, you just squeeze out the amount needed on the brass before you heat the part with your choice of torch.
We are using SSQ-6 to join two copper plates. Just push the plunger on the syringe and add the amount need for the solder joint. Copper has a variety of uses, it can be found in water piping in every building or home in North America. Copper is also used in A/C units, refrigeration, and is a good conductor of electricity.
A 1/8" steel plate is soldered to a copper end cap using Muggy Weld SSQ-6 56% silver solder paste.
Two pieces of brass are brazed with SSQ-6 and a propane torch.
This deep sea pole has a broken eyelet. We make the repair with SSQ-6 and a propane torch, as well as Cool Blue Heat Paste.
SSQ-6 is the perfect solution for jobs like this--parts are balancing, and if a rod were used they could easily be knocked over but the silver solder almost glues them together and acts like a jig when heated.
Using SSQ-6 silver solder paste, Mike silver solders a stainless steel plate to a piece of copper tubing.
A stainless steel threaded bolt is soldered to a brass nut using SSQ-6 silver solder paste in syringe form.
