Hmm - perhaps work hardened from the drawing process. Have you tried annealing it?I've used 1/16" and 1/8" brazing rod for small parts but I think it is not as soft (harder) as 360 brass rod. Can anyone comment or verify?
Note that TIG brazing rod is a different alloy (silicone bronze) than gas brazing rods and never have flux on them (flux would be counterproductive in the use of TIG). Whether or not the difference in alloy matters when using some as a part in a hobby machinist project ... that is, of course, for the machinist to determine!You should be able to get bronze TIG rod at a welding supply .
