In North America, we call it brazing because it is a different process
both chemically and mechanically than soldering. Brazing rod is brass
and solder is a lead/ten alloy (or silver if "silver soldering").
Jan makes some good points about a brazed joint but you should wear the
PROPER eye protection, not just dark sunglasses! You only get one set of
eyes, don't take a chance !!!!
