    And if you canít braze in your bed at least do it on top of the washing machine.

    - Good planning is a key for good results. Prepare your working area.
    - Know your materials, study metals and different methods how they are worked with.
    - Practise few times to some scrap pieces when trying new equipment or materials to figure out the best method for current situation
    - When doing hot work, always handle your pieces as they were hot. Even if you may know that your piece is not hot yet, still treat it as one ie. touch only with pliers or such. Respect heat.
    - Look for the colour of the heating metal, you'll learn fast to see when it's hot enough to melt the silver.
    - You should let the silver be melted only by the transferring heat ie. do not melt it in direct flame.
    - Heat transfers fast, use fire bricks etc between your piece and vice bench.
    - Bed is for other kind of hot work unless you are a real big fan of Midnight Oil.

    Treating all metal as always hot is a great tip.... Im always grabbing hot trays out of the oven? still....

    Question... Does it make a lot of Fumes... Is Ventilation and a Mask a good idea?
