I just saw this at It looks like great stuff. I doubt it is as strong as a wig or tig weld as this guy says in the video. It is expensive. Has anyone tied it and is it worth the cost?

Small technical note-that's where it becomes brazing as opposed to soldering.  840f, I heard him say 8-something,  close enough.

Top-end custom steel bicycle frames are made with brazed silver socket-type joints every day (most commonly 56%).  Butted bronze joints bike, are fillet brazed as well.  Brazing is serious metal joinery.  Arc welding is a 19th-century joinery contraption.  

Will work nearly anywhere in place of a weld.  

I'd check on the solubility of that particular flux on the stuff in the video.  All the coated rods i've used had non-soluble flux and you have to grind that away for cleanup.  Nearly all the paste and powder fluxes will dissolve/soften in a water soak-the best joinery needs no shaping after that.

56% and Harris white flux is all you need to hang parts, besides clean metal and a small gap.
