ToneMonkey Posted February 4, 2008 Report Share Posted February 4, 2008 (edited) Alright mate, following on from the other thread, I've started this one so as not to hijack aidlook's. My problem is that I need to join 2 pieces of steel. 1 piece (side/vertical) is 0.9mm, the other piece (top/horizontal) is 0.7mm thick. The side is bent and clamped around a curved form. The top then sits on top of it (obviously) to be joined. I can create a lip or teeth in the top and bend it round at 90 degrees if needs be. I'd prefer not to have to, but the option is there if I need it (for example, if welding it isn't suitable and I need to silver solder/braize it). Obviously I need to limit the amount of distortion that the metal sees to an absolute minimum. The finished weld will also need sanding down to form a nice rounded edge with the top and side. Also, just to make things difficult, this may be chrome plated. This is done at a fairly high temperature, so if I end up silver soldering it, it would have to be able to stand this temperature. Any help would be greatly appreciated. On a lighter note, aren't you a fairly long way north in Sweden? Thought it would be fairly dark up there for long periods at the minute, hence the crack about having enough light to work with. I was born in Sweden but moved away was I was still a nipper so can't remember it. Definately going to be going back at some point over the next couple of years. Been promising myself for ages. Kaj (very happy because there's probably 3 or 4 people on these boards now who can pronounce his name) Edited February 4, 2008 by ToneMonkey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
