Need a tiny bit of welding done in Canberra?

thy_dungeonman 4 June 2012 8

I have been restoring an old cabinet and I had to replace the handle, now I have a new glass handle with a brass collar but I need to weld it to the screw thread which the door catch attaches too.

It’s an extremely small job, it only involves welding an outer circle of brass to an inner circle about 10cm in circumference, so I’m not sure where to find a welding service for such a thing, or indeed just someday who can weld.

What's Your Opinion?

Hi thy_dungeonman,

We recently had to get a bit of welding work done on the fence at our property in Bonner.

We got it done from Joe in fyshwick and were quite impressed. was the mob – thanks to good old google.

My 2 cents.

Buy a couple of brazing rods , a small butane torch, a couple of pieces of scrap brass and start hitting up YouTube instructional videos. Most welders might steer clear of it because it is a small job and risk of ruining the pieces is a bit higher.

Tuggeranong Metal Centre should be able to handle it.

What you are after is brazing, which involves an oxy/acetylene torch and filler rod. Unfortunately I can’t think of anyone who could do that kind of work.

Seriously, it may work.

Could you get away with soldering it? Soldering is a much easier solution that you can do cheaply yourself.
