yeah I guess, I wouldn't trust it for something real important. I don't see the metals actually fusing together, rather just laying on top.

Yeah, there's no real penetration going on there. It's more like a badass glue. I wouldn't trust this if you're using it in a high heat or anything that will support a lot of weight/tension.

It will work great with brazing though.

Like welding, a brazed joint, if done properly is stronger than the surrounding metal by a significant margin. So depending on the application, its plenty strong.

I don't think anybody needs any buttholes filled any time soon, but thanks for the heads up.

I was just going to make a thread about this.... lol

I've tried welding aluminum but failed because I obvioulsy don't have the proper equipment but they make it look really easy in the vid.

So I am seriously thinking about getting their rods to do the following
1.connect my intercooler piping this way and ditch all my couplers
2.make an aluminum exhaust from resonator-back (for weight saving reasons)

Will it hold up?

I got the rods and tried this on intercooler piping just 30 minutes ago.
It is not as easy as it looks in that video. Actually it didn't work at all for intercooler piping. I sat there heating one spot for 30 minutes and it didnt get hot enough to melt the rod on it like it is shown in that video.
Maybe this requires some rediculously powerful torch?
