HB. Technically silver soldering is actually Silver brazing due to the high temperature, that's what i meant. Brazing is not confined to using brass.

I thought 'braze' actually means brass - a brazier is a bloke who works with brass - like a plumber was a bloke who worked with lead before plastic was invented.

I'd have thought that silver-brazing was making a joint in silver with molten brass and nothing to do with temperature, as lead and lead-free solder melt at different temperatures just like silver solder.
