Tig brazing some vise grips

Postby Farmwelding » Sat Dec 30, 2017 9:12 pm

Anybody ever braze the clamping point on a pair of vise grips to make a soft clamp or soft jaws. I plan on clamping some stainless that I don't want to scratch.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything. Want to become a knower of all and master of none.
