Strength of 45% silver solder vs brazing
I had a hook on my irrigation pipe break this morning. The hook is bronze. They are no longer available. Out of production 1949. My only choice is to braze it or to silver solder it. I have some 45% solder but am wondering which is going to be the strongest in tension. This pipe is 4" dia.aluminum pipe and has approx. 50 psi when operating.
Thanks in advance.....Jim
