I have one of those balls that clean out your chimney pipe. It has a
threaded nub on the center of the wire conglomeration that makes up the
brush. Anyway, I want to get 10-12 ft. of 3/16" new wire rope and find the
nubbin to fit my nub, then "weld" it on, plus on the other end, run a puddle
of something resembling solder so that next time, I will have a nubbin to
chuck up to so I can spin the brush when it is deep down in the pipe.
Would I just get the loose running end hot, and let some brazing rod flow in
there? Take two or three wraps with baling wire to keep the spiral tight?
I don't want to weld it, just get it hot enough for something to FLOW ON AND
STICK to the end. I know solder would never do, what would be the next
thing? Brazing rod? Something with a flux?
