  • Mystery Rods

    I received a milk crate full of arc welding rods from an estate. Included is an unopened bundle of blue flux coated rods that are not for arc welding and have no identifying marks. I'm guessing they're for oxy acetylene welding, or brazing maybe? I've never done either so am unfamiliar with materials involved. Does anyone recognize these rods and can tell me what they are and what they're used for so I can label them properly? They do not make any spark when held against a grinder, they're too heavy for aluminum, there is no sign of oxydation on the ends, they are non-magnetic, and the metal is shiney silver. Nickel maybe?

    Silver solder or a "silver brazing alloy"?
