Silver soldering is a type of brazing that joins two pieces of metal by melting and flowing a silver-based solder between them. It produces a very strong bond.
To silver solder the flash hider, you will need:
- Solder – a silver-based solder is best, as it has the lowest melting point and will create the strongest bond
- Flux – this helps the solder to flow more easily and provides corrosion protection
- Furnace or torch – you will need to heat the parts to be joined sufficiently so that the solder can melt and flow properly
First, make sure that both of the parts to be joined are clean and free from any dirt, debris, or oils. Then, apply flux to both surfaces. Next, heat the parts with the torch or furnace until the solder melts and flows evenly between the two surfaces. Finally, allow the joint to cool before handling.
