    Do some searches here on my tube builds, I have done a bunch (some don't have a build thread here) but you can get an idea of what it takes.

    The cost of supplies for doing tube work has more than doubled in the past year, so plan accordingly, it is not cheap. I don't know if you have a torch, but propane is slower and it too cold for some applications. You will need MAPP (new formula), acetylene, or an oxy setup if you plan on a large project.
    I use an acetylene setup for most and back up with a MAPP torch for certain things.

    Yes.. Kind of. You need to get the metal cherry and you can't fill easily. Harris works by capillary action, the tighter the joint the better. The bigger issue is brazing small pieces, on dissimilar metal and size pieces, if you overheat one piece the flux will turn black and the material will not stick. You will have too strip all the black gunk off and start again. I learned quick because I rarely ever use one size material ( can't stand how generic things look when it is all the same size)

    If you use brass rod then you can fill, but it takes even more heat. RCC has some videos
