French term or phrase: filet
We're talking about soldering.

Parmi les énoncés suivants, lequel présente les caractéristiques idéales d’un joint brasé?
- Un filet concave, une couverture complète par la brasure, une texture lisse, un mouillage qui s’étale sur les métaux avec un raccordement progressif, le contour de la sortie visible.
- Un filet convexe, une couverture complète par la brasure, une texture lisse, un mouillage qui s’étale sur les métaux avec un raccordement progressif, le contour de la sortie visible.

My attempt:
Among the following statements, which one presents the ideal characteristics of a brazed joint?
- Concave fillet, completely covered by solder, smooth texture, wetting spread over the metal with a progressive connection, visible output outline.
- Convex fillet, completely covered by solder, smooth texture, wetting spread over the metal with a progressive connection, visible output outline.

Thanks!

Asker: Thanks for confirming, Tony. How do you mean, "other things to look at"? I'm rather confident about the remaining terms. What have I overlooked? :-)

  -> Thanks, Chris! Yes, indeed — I was translating for one customer for several years, until one day I got 2 different terms being contrasted, and I realized I'd been getting it wrong all this time :-(
