A while back the blade on my diamond bandsaw broke, at the point of
the original joint. I’ve been told this can be successfully repaired
in the studio. I took a stab at it, without success. I really had a
hard time setting up the soldering job… keeping the two ends in
proper alignment and in contact with each other. When I finally was
able to attempt the soldering job, all I could get the silver solder
to do was ball up and sit there. Would not flow into the joint.
Any general tips on silver soldering stainless steel? What flux?
Special considerations? Even more important, has anyone actually
performed this task and can provide specific advice?
Thanks in advance!
