Scarf and clean your steel as you would normally do in preparing for a
Heat your pieces to a red heat and lightly apply the flux. Note:
A little bit of this flux will go a long way so use sparingly.
You only need to coat the surfaces that are going to be welded.
Put the pieces back in the forge and bring up to welding temperature
and weld as you would normally. Note: Because of the
formulation of this flux you are able to weld at a lower
temperature. Do not over heat your steel.
Repeat the process if necessary to finish the weld.
Usage tip: When fluxing your steel do it over an aluminum pie pan
or something similar. At the end of the day, clean the dirt and
scale from the pie pan and pour the flux back in the flux can for
future use. This will cut down on the amount of flux that you
will need to use.
