Brass covered nail project Part 3 coming along

 

IMAG0578

The large brass overlayed steel nail project is really taken shape.  It is getting bigger.  Started with several subassemblies.  These subassemblies are then braze welded together.  As the size increases, the weight does to and it becomes more fragile.  When full sized it will need some support braze welded to the back.  These braces will also feature the mounting hooks.

    what torch are you using for the masonry nail art? looks great.

    • The torch I used was a Harris medium duty oxygen acetylene torch. This operation takes a lot of heat and this is the only torch I would use.

        Thanks. Do you think a smaller project could be made with aluminum welding rods and a propane torch? because that is all i have. It would be a silver colored project and not the rich brass color though.
