Never TIG brazed a day in my life; always wanted to try it. Join me as I probably do a ton of stuff wrong!

A while back I showed my wife the start of your video where you make a wooden sword for your son because I thought she'd like the humor. Now she has to watch every one of your videos with me on the day they come out. Not sure if its because she is enjoying the videos as much as I am, or if she's just concerned my sense of humor will be damaged if I'm not closely monitored. Either way, thanks for providing the catalyst for quality time with my beloved! :-)

You seriously have a way of making everything entertaining. I have no intention of learning to machine metal or half the things you do, but I still watch. Although I do want to learn how to Tig weld. Also, I will probably stroke your ego more in the future.

I need to visit those joints that ThisOldTony recommends. They must be brazen.

Awesome, The stepping up of the Amps from way too low and showing those results is so helpful to see - learning a ton from that!

Just turn it up and keep your rod in, trust me I used to be a welder, but I’m alright now!

Tony, I'm a welding instructor and boilermaker. I enjoy your videos. They're not only very funny, but perhaps some of the most insightful sources on joining metals. I'm glad you mentioned joint configuration design and how a brazed joint can be just as strong. What I like about bronze is that it allows you to temporarily join dissimilar metals. Afterwarda apply heat and voila take them part with minimal distortion and clean up. So when you're working a prototype, it's an excellent alternative to welding if you want to save material in that phase of a project.

Interesting stuff! Made it through all of your videos and catched up with this one today. Thanks for everything so far!

"...maybe you can see if your cat's on fire when it's not supposed to be." Now I have to clean bourbon and coke out of my keyboard.

Your channel is literally the only one I've sub'd to where 90% of the content doesn't apply to anything I do - and yet I love to watch the vids. You do a great job on both presentation and explanation.

I’m on Garuda Indonesia on my way to Bali and the man in the seat next to me is pretending not to watch TOT over my shoulder. He groans slightly when I (deliberately) move the iPad so he can’t see. 😁

As a draftsperson at a metal fabrication shop, melty holes are a no-no.
