      Audrey you can't trust what the people in hardware or plumbing shops say. Most of them have never fit any pipes.
      Don\'t ask me to do a dam thing, I\'m retired.

          Just curious as to which of us is more stupid 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?

          (I expect you'll come back with a "You Win!")

          Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

          It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

            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.
