I expect it could pass the MOT if the inspector didnt realise what it
was, but you certainly shouldnt braze a car together, its inadequate.
Welding is far stronger, and easy enough. Gasless wire is very easy to
use, arc welders are much cheaper to buy and run, but not so easy to
use, and they leave a right mess behind. BTW 40A is plenty for car
work - many welders used on cars dont go low enough, make sure you get
one that goes down to 15A.
Depends on how its used.
Its very common on radiator repairs for example. Its perfectly OK for
bodywork and exhausts. I would personally say that a seam brazed box
section is stronger than a factory spot welded one.
The only place I would be shy of using it is on thick chassis members
where I do agree that welding is teh ay to go.
It is on chassis. Even I can weld a chaissis. Its not easy on thin
bodywork, and a poorly welded joint is worse than a well brazed one.
