Testimonials:
  • "I am sure several of you have seen the guys at the boat show weldiing aluminum with a rod and a propane torch. and wondered if this stuff could be handy for "in the field" and remote repairs .... bottom line, yes, the stuff works and could be very handy" ....Captkeywest

  • "GREAT STUFF I ordered aluminum welding rods to weld together a big job. I am refurbishing my 16' X 8' pontoon boat and I am making my own railing out of 1" square aluminum tubes. You guessed it, I used the rods to weld the cuts together and it is wonderful."...Anonymous

  • "I repaired my 1975 Starcraft aluminum boat. I had 11 leaks 0 leaks now. The whole trick is do it twice.The first time did not stop leaks. I reheated each leak and rubbed each with stainless brush.I guess it is a matter of tinning fine cracks and loose rivets."...Dave Hafner

  • "It's absolutely wonderful! It really does work very well. You can actually repair aluminum articles without flux and without very high heat. You just heat the broken piece with a propane torch, then after it's beyond the melting point of the rod, you rub the article with the rod, and the aluminum alloy will fill the gap in the broken piece. Great stuff!"...Mike M.
