its O/A gas welding. practice for an upcoming project. ive experimented with gas welding once prior, on a much smaller scale.
so ya, its kinda like brazing, but not really. when brazing there is a lot of "flicking" the flame away to keep the tubes and brass from over heating. i had to fight that urge to flick away the flame. keep the tip buried in the molten pool and add filler (wire coat hanger in this case).
after i do this a couple more times ill get the hang of it, things wont be so ugly.
and of course TIG welding is on the distant horizon.
