    Worked absolutely perfect!!! Only took about a minute to heat up the aluminum on my 10 foot job boat at the hole and the fluxless rod melted/penetrated right into the hole wonderfully…Thank You So Much!!!

    I fixed holes in the bottom of a boat with the product. I learned about this product from the Aluminum-Weld youtube channel. I do some soldering on copper pipe and welding at basic level. This product worked great. I did cover the welds with an epoxy filler just so it would look nice after painting. Someone who is better at brazing/welding/grinding will probably be able to get a smooth surface just with the rods. The boat is a family heirloom. I am glad to get it back in the water and fish with my kids.

    Took a bit to get the hang of the flow. Learned the second time around it is like putting on drywall mud. The more you try to improve it to look better the worse it gets. The product worked well when I checked it under a light for any holes. Pictures of before and after it was filed down then painted.

      Looks like you did a vertical repair and it turned out pretty well for your first one. Vertical is more difficult than overhead or flat but follow the instructions and practice. A video of a similar repair https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lhfWqD8Iawo

      Hello Kevin,
      I see you ordered on May 13 your order was taken to the US Post Office on that day. We ship USPS First Class unless a request for a faster delivery time is received. Orders shipped in USA usually takes 5 to 9 business days and orders going to Canada (like yours) usually take 10 – 15 business days. It has only been 4 business days since you ordered.

We sent out tracking information so that you can track your order. Currently your order is in Chicago on its way to Canada. Then it must pass through Canada’a Customs before it will be sent to the delivery post office. Feel free to contact us by phone if you need further assistance.

    The rods worked as stated but my boat was to thin to weld or I got the aluminum too hot cause it buckled as I was heating it.

    • Randall Gasser (store manager)

      Hi Adrian, I posted a video that addresses this issue. Go to youtube.com/c/aluminum-weld and watch the Heat Control video. Also sometimes aluminum will warp when heated. Hope this helps.

    I give it a 3 because its not quite as easy as they make it out to be, I used it on a aluminium AC condenser on a car that had rubbed thur against steel cleaned it well an it stuck well to one side tough to get it to stick to the other so it worked so far but not really sure ot the integrity of the braze. time will tell. I used propane and that is alittle under temp to make this work. MAPP or oxy acetlyene would probably be better and easier to get the base material hot enough to spread it and get a bond. Ill try again with either of those and report back.

    The rods were all broken from being transported in an envelope that was too small and had no protective edges or anything to keep them from being crushed or broken during their journey.

    • Kerri Gasser (store manager)

      Thank you for your feedback. We had to change our packaging due to shipping issues that came about due to COVID-19. USPS has delayed and piled up first class mail which contributed to rod breaking during shipping. We now are shipping in a protective package.

    They work fine, however 3 of the 4 I’ve used were broken in half when I pulled them from the package tube.

    • Randall Gasser (store manager)

      Due to COVID 19 packages are getting stacked up and the 8 packs were getting broken. We now ship in a protective sleeve. Also you can put the pieces back together as well as use the short ends by putting both ends together and heating until they melt, let cool and you now have a long rod with no waste.

    This was my first attempt at a prop repair. After watching two short YouTube videos, these are my before and after photos. The entire process was quite easy to do. I used a 4 inch grinder with 60 and 280 grit paper. I highly recommend this rod and will be ordering more.

    The order of the brazing rods came pretty quick with in a week of purchasing them online and usually take couple of weeks living here in alaska. I purchased after looking online from one of the posts and wanted to try them out. Living here in alaska we use the riveted aluminum lund boats all summer long and on 3 rivets that had a little crack on the boat sure helped a lot! No more leaks and will be purchasing more in the future when i need them!

    3 rods are broken

    • Randall Gasser (store manager)

      Sorry to hear that the Rods were broken. We appreciate your feedback. This year the Post Office has had shipping delays and more packages have been stacked causing the breakage. We are constantly trying to improve our packaging procedures. Any additional information or pictures is appreciated.. You can heat the rods and put them back together so that way there is no left over pieces. 100 % of the rods are usable.

    Did not bond to bare aluminum very well in my experience wanted to bead and collect on surface instead of bonding to surface. Only way i was able to get it to fill the 1/8” hole was getting material bead on surface and taking a steel piece of metal to push it flat against the aluminum

    • Randall Gasser (store manager)

      Hi Dustin, What you are describing to me is the aluminum was not up to 735 degrees F. or the aluminum was contaminated. I am guessing that you had to add heat to the steel for the bond. I use steel as you did for overhead and vertical jobs. I have videos showing this technique at youtube.com/c/aluminum-weld. Also I can be called for questions. Thanks for your review as they help us all and I plan to add a video to youtube showing these issues. YouTube Video link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INhPrY4X6Ts

    aluminum melted before rod did now i have a bigger hole in my boat !

    • Randall Gasser (store manager)

      Hi Steve, That should never happen because the aluminum melts at around 1230 degrees F. and the HTS-735-11 rod melts at 735 Degrees F. about 500 degrees lower temperature. I am guessing that you took a long time between checking the aluminum temperature with the HTS-735-11 Rod.(YouTube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INhPrY4X6Ts&t=27s) You must check the aluminum temperature every couple of seconds as the aluminum will not change color and give you any indication of temperature, or you just tried to guess at the temperature without using the HTS-735-11 Rod as your the temperature guide. I have made two videos that address this, one is on the side of a soda can ” (YouTube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odC0EeO5h4U&t=11s) that is thin aluminum” and with proper heat control I was able to get the HTS-735-11 Rod to melt without burning a hole in the can. Now if the HTS-735-11 Rod can do that, then thicker aluminum should be and is much easier to repair. As for the larger hole, I show how to make and install a patch for holes larger than 3/8inch in my Pontoon repair video(YouTube Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LB8qw-u9XVI&t=607s). All my videos can be found at youtube.com/c/aluminum-weld

    I bought the product primarily to repair the bottom of an aluminum boat and it performed exactly as promised. No complaints! But before doing that, however, as a test, I tried joining two 1/8 inch plates together perpendicularly (following the printed instructions) and was disappointed when they broke apart will very little effort. I called the 800 number, explained what I’d done (and how) and got some tips on how to improve the “weld”. I followed the advice and got a far superior result, so technique has a lot to do with it. The fact that the product works and that they are there to help has me sold on the product and the company.
