Best No Welder Aluminum Welding Rods

Which low-temperature welding or brazing rods are the best?

Todd at Project Farm tests the top brands of low-temperature aluminum welding or brazing rods (in no particular order, available from Amazon):

Low-temperature welding rods are designed to melt at approximately 730°F while aluminum melts at approximately 1,220°F. Each of the welding rod brands was tested for melting point, tensile strength, and other bonding characteristics.

In the end, the best-performing aluminum welding rod brand is really put to the test when it is used to patch a hole in a small engine cylinder head.
