Did you buy it off ebay?

Audrey you can't trust what the people in hardware or plumbing shops say. Most of them have never fit any pipes.

Just curious as to which of us is more stupid http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif Did you resort to buying MAP gas for your Bernzomatic torch before you came to the conclusion the cold looking solder joints were caused by something other than lack of heat? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//smile.gif

No MAP Gas I wondered why the flux kept burning and soot on pipes. Oh well solder on and learn I say. Its always the really simple solutions that arent looked at.
