Patch Holes in Aluminum Fast And easy for cheap!!!

Post by walleye88 » 20 Jul 2016, 16:21

I Have a 1969 16ft wards sea king and it had some old holes in the side from rod holders so I looked at a few options on how to fix it and I decided on a very easy and effective method that was aluminum brazing. Aluminum brazing rods are very cheap on amazon and most of them hold up better then the harbor freight ones. check them out as an option to patch screw holes it worked perfect for me and all you need is a butane torch and sand paper with a little rubbing alcohol. Ill upload my photos I just wanted to share this method so if anyone else is looking to permanently fix some small holes they can! Thanks for reading here are the links to what I used!

This was the brazing rods I used there cheap and effective! :LOL2:



And this is the Butane torch I used just copy the link into your search window! :D
