To achieve the required properties of the joints (strength, corrosion or oxidation resistance) in specific service areas, the most important factors are the selection of the optimal filler metal and process parameters (heating method, brazing atmosphere, fluxes, temperature and time).
Note the existing hole in the switch lever was preserved, the modest dressing near and above the solder joint area to remove extra run-over filler metal, and the small "gold" colored spot at the right end of the joint caused by "glass" residue totally removed.
This is accomplished without the need for filler metal materials and without clipping, soldering, crimping, or dipping.
The American Welding Society (AWS) defines brazing as a group of joining processes that cause the coalescence of materials in the presence of a brazing filler metal that has a liquidus temperature above 840[degrees]F/450[degrees]C, but below the solidus temperature of the base materials.
During this welding process, you use a hard-surfacing filler metal (a stick electrode or flux-cored wire, usually) to add specific wear properties and dimensions to your new or old equipment.
