    Where can I get stainless Rings for my irons?
    A lot would be great.
    Any others besides surfaceirons.com?
    I have butane and propane for heat.

    I f you want to use stainless , you will be better off buying the correct diameter wire and forming your own . You will then have the correct analysis of the alloy to be able to get the correct fill and flux materials for that analysis . Stainless is really finicky about the filler and flux for brazing . A fixture can be made by taking a steel rod or bolt the diameter you want your rings and cutting a slit in the end . The wire will form up easy with the jig . If you buy premade make sure the seller can ID the stainless. Any good welding supply shop should be able to sell you what you need to make it work , rod , filler , flux . Add Only Martenitic 400 series alloys are heat treatable . You can quench harden after brazing . Other wise the rings can oval or bend under a load . Just my $.02 . . ADD , you can buy the premade , set up all your hooks etc and take them to someone with a shield gas welder rather than brazing with your torches . WR
