Soldering and brazing are terms often used to denote the same operation, that of joining similar or dissimilar metals by means of molten metal which may be of the same kind, but which usually has a lower melting point than the metals to be joined. The term “brazing” is usually employed to denote the soldering with an alloy of copper or zinc. “Soldering” is usually taken to represent the joining of surfaces by means of an alloy of lead and tin, and “hard-soldering” is understood to mean the process of uniting as above described with silver and its alloys used as a uniting metal. Hard soldering and brazing are practically the same, and are both done in about the same way.
