Dumb(?) newbie question

  1. Pentawelder Angle grinder operator

    I built a prototype by brazing and now need to weld it together.
    I have melted most of the brazing off and now need to flux weld
    the whole thing back together.
    My question is, do I need to grind off absolutely avery trace of
    brazing or will it be ok to leave some?
    Thanks.
    Great forum,

    Dependant upon the type of thing you're making...
    You should remove all traces of the brazing to ensure an inclusion free weld, giving you full strength and no porosity or overlap.

    Thanks Hitachimad, I was thinking along those lines. Look out angle grinder here I come. No more brazed prototypes.
