I've got some of the rods. I made a few ornamental things but never tried it on anything structural.

you really need to get stuff hot and are better off using map gas as opposed to propane also you need to keep scrubbing off the byproduct of the alumium while you are heating it with the small wirebrush they give you.

Yep, repaired a stator cover with them, turned out nice.
