jlpservicesinc Posted December 12, 2017 Share Posted December 12, 2017 This is a fast video on how i make up welding flux.. I started doing it this way back in the 80's and the main advantage is " it is a condensed product).. IE : Denser product.. First off it's a : To each there own video".. Wanna discuss fluxes or likes vs dislikes go for it.. This particular subject as to which is better. has and is beaten to death.. This is simple a video for the curious at heart.. . It takes 3-4 pints of hydrous borax to make 1 pint of anhydrous borax.. This means it weighs a lot more per volume and it has a higher coverage ratio vs 20 Mule team or oven made Anhydrous which never gets to the melting point.. Of note: The pan is carbon steel and the flux eats it as it's heated thereby introducing iron into the mix.. Years ago when I was experimenting after seeing a box of Climax and then again with EZ weld. I noticed they have little pieces of metal swarth in them.. so I grabbed a bunch from the band saw and threw them in the cold mix.. I eventually disliked it enough that I melted it down as in this video.. When I did this the little chips completely disappeared into the borax..
