Double welding copper with acetylene! That must taken a lot of skill, back in the day I used to double weld stainless steel tanks with tig. We only went to 6mm thick and could be a pain, can't imagine how difficult 3/4 copper would be.Forfarian wrote: ↑Thu Jun 18, 2020 3:22 pmNot something i require Rog, I have been soft soldering, silver soldering, brazing and welding Copper Ally, Stainless and carbon steel for 60yrs. My only problem is keeping the hands steady these days!!!!!
I am a Coppersmith by trade, we used to double weld 3/4" thick copper using oxy/acetylene torches!
Just revived this old thread after coming across a tear down by BigClive.dot com. The conclusion being that the soldered part of the joint is not really up to scratch and a much sounder joint could be produced with normal soldering and glue lined shrink sleeving.Forfarian wrote: ↑Thu Jun 18, 2020 1:33 pm https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A% ...
