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.

Square steel is joined to rectangular steel with SSF-6 and an oxyacetylene torch. SSF-6 provides a perfect color match and better finish than MIG welding, with a bond of over 70,000 PSI.
At 56% silver, SSF-6 Silver Solder is ideal for brazing all types of steel. This video gives step by step instructions for repairing steel pipe with an oxy-acetylene torch.
Rich Shoop (The Gun Slinger, Mt. Ayr, Indiana) was hired to restore this antique Ithaca, and discovered a missing piece on the barrel.
2 galvanized steel plates are joined using Super Alloy 1 and a propane torch. The low melting point of Super Alloy 1 is ideal for soldering without damaging the protective zinc coating.
Soldering Galvanized Steel with Super Alloy 1
Josh Colson from Auburn Muffler and Auto Repair in Auburn, Washington, is using SSF-6 Silver Solder by MuggyWeld.com, to braze a cast iron flange to aluminized steel tubing for better air flow.
SSF-6 brazes a stainless steel tube to a steel plate at over 70,000 PSI with a propane torch.
Joining square steel tubing to mild flat bar steel with SSF-6 Silver Solder. Straight propane is used for this braze, as SSF-6 is lower temperature than most high content silver solders.
SSF-6 Silver Solder brazes stainless steel to copper, brass, or steel... in any combination, and can be successfully applied using a propane torch, oxyacetylene, MAPP gas or a natural gas torch.
Braze steel to brass tubing with Muggy Weld SSF-6 Silver Solder and a propane torch. Step by step instructions for SSF-6, as well as tips and troubleshooting.
Super Alloy 1 multi metal solder joins aluminum to galvanized steel at 350 degrees--a bonding strength of 20,000 psi.
Solder zinc plated steel to brass tubing or pipe with Super Alloy 1 low temperature solder. This multi-metal solder melts at 350 degrees and bonds at 20,000 psi.
Solder steel to pot metal at 350 degrees using a propane torch and Super Alloy 1 rod and flux.
A 1/8" steel plate is soldered to a copper end cap using Muggy Weld SSQ-6 56% silver solder paste.
Tami holds a piece of steel 1 inch from where the base metal is approximately 1500°F, with about 1 oz. of COOL BLUE heat paste applied.
John at MHSS (a hydraulic hose repair shop) saves a $300 hydraulic hose using our SSF-6 silver solder.
This steel oil pan is repaired with our SSF-6 silver solder using a propane torch.
Auto body panels are very thin nowadays, and mig welding these parts without warpage can be very difficult.
This clip shows a fender being repaired with Super Alloy 1 and 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.
