Epoxy. Cheap and no extinguisher needed.

Those who claim to be making history are often the same ones repeating it.

No extinguisher needed...at least till you mix bigger quantities in a cup or the like

Everything is possible....to do the impossible just takes a little while longer.

If I get a torch from Bernzomatic: http://www.bernzomatic.com/bernzomat...equestid=87320

which one would I have to get in order to attach a steel plate to a stainless steel piece?

I'm looking towards welding a logo onto a large stainless steel piece.

You need something oxy. Oxy-MAPP can weld, I believe. O/A obviously can. Oxy-propane can't (it gets hot enough, but I've never heard anyone say they have done it effectively). Any gas and air cannot weld, such as the torch on the page you linked. Solders quite well though.

Which reminds me, you can solder with these torches, and braze (at least with a large one). Is there any reason why you can't use that instead? You can get fluxes for stainless, relatively strong silver-bearing solders, and the heat won't discolor it. Brazing uses lower temperatures than welding while providing nearly the same strength, and you can get a color match.
