Brazing Aluminum..?

Is it possible? If so, how hard is it? I have quite a bit of welding experience but I've only brazed a handful of times, and I would be brazing the keel on an aluminum boat.

I braze copper to copper all the time at work, I wouldn't think aluminum would be that much harder/different. Just get the proper brazing rod and go to town.

Good luck on brazing aluminum with something other than aluminum.

You can use aluminum welding rods to braze. Make sure everything is clean. I've done it before but is was years ago.
