Saw this product on the tube yesterday.I was wondering if any have used it?It claims to rebuild aluminum parts tougher than new just by cleaning and heating with a propane torch.It show someone rebuilding a damaged triple tree by building up the broken off part,grinding, and drilling the damaged area.The product looks like a cross between solder and welding rod.Anyone try using this ?

Hav tried it before, it works well on the stuff it works on but is poor on most items. Takes a long time and a lot of rods to get the hang of it and you never really know if it will work.

Concur with Bill, if I really needed an alum part welded I would find a certified welder. MIG or TIG on anything other than alum trailer siding.

Stuff works good for cracked covers. But it does take practice. Too much heat and you've nothing to work with.
