    You could try using Mapp gass instead of propane.

    Try heating the part first in an oven. That will help the solder flow more smoothly.

    Aluminum Solder Paste

    I purchased this product to fill a gouge in an anluminum mag wheel.

    I can not get it to melt. I have tried a propane torch and a butane torch. It seems to start to melt and then does nothing. After it cools it just wipes off.

    If I try it on an eighth inch thick aluminum bar it melts and beads to a ball. I thought it would flow.

    Am I doing something wrong or just not enough heat from the butane (it is supposed to go the 3100').

    Thanks
    Terry
