picked up some surplus filler rod that i hope to use with TIG.. but i dont know what it is.
the price was right (cheap!) and i'm just learning, so just about everything and anything is food for my puddles.
the rods are 1.6mm and are either brass or bronze. (at least thats what color they are). judging from the seller, i'm guessing they were used for oxyact brazing/welding.
they're not too hard to cut with wirecutters (though harder than they appear) and cut with a definite 'snap'
i've read a few archives about tigging with bronze/brass and thought this was my chance to try.
are there any telltale signs while welding that would help me identify these? and if they are meant for O/A, will they work at all with tig?
sorry so vague,
