Bilaminate Joints: Actually Building Them
So let's chit-chat a bit about the best way to actually build a bi-lam joint. I'm about to embark on some experiments with them and wanted to get some feedback.
What I was thinking is this:
Miter the two tubes. Tack them together with bronze. Tin the joint so that everything is held together without the need for a giant fillet. Clean up everything so the sleeve slides into place cleanly. Build the fillet with the bronze. Clean/finish the fillet. Go through and use 56% silver to fill the area under the sleeve.
I'm trying to visualize any stupid gotchas from doing it this way. Thoughts?
