Well, to do brass to brass I need either nickle/silver or brass braising rods. Problem is that you need a flame that exceeds 1650 degrees F. to use those. In theory butane will do that. In practice, not.
That means that in order to do brass to brass braising I'd have to shell out $50 for a Oxy/MAPP braising rig. I'm not ready to do that just yet, so I will do what I was planning to do before I got the idea that I could do brass-to-brass braising, which is to use 3 mm ID copper tubing and an end flange and extruder tip of copper built in a brass flange. That's not elegant, but it should do the trick.
