Default beryllium copper

I have some BeCu strip [ 1" x .020 ] that I would like to make into a
loop to check the co-planerness of a chiwan 4x6. Can BeCu be soldered
[soft or hard], brazed, silfos or whatever? Open to other ideas also.
Thanks,
CP

A 4" x 6" horizontal bandsaw? I can make all the adjustments mine
needs with a combination square.

I set up angles other than 45 and 90, and compound angles, by clamping
shims to the fence and table.

Be very careful working with beryllium copper, it can be very toxic.
