How to Solder Copper Pipe (Important Tips!!) -- by Home Repair Tutor
Do you need to learn how to solder copper pipe? Today's tutorial will share how to cut, prep, and solder copper pipe. Make soldering copper pipe easier with these supplies AutoCut Tube Cutter  -- http://amzn.to/2l63ZtF Ridgid No. 15 Tube Cutter -- http://amzn.to/2jMbEw9 Wire Brush -- http://amzn.to/2l698Cj Emery Cloth -- http://amzn.to/2l6bwJj Laco Flux -- http://amzn.to/2l62Jai Flux Brush -- http://amzn.to/2kBAEun Silvabrite Solder -- http://amzn.to/2k4EM2U MAP-Pro Gas Torch (better than propane) -- http://amzn.to/2jtqCcF Bernzomatic TS4000 Trigger Start Torch -- http://amzn.to/2jtUZzr 1/2" 90 Degree Elbows -- http://amzn.to/2jvzpL1 Flame Shield -- http://amzn.to/2ieVfpH Gloves -- http://amzn.to/2jxnoEG Safety Glasses -- http://amzn.to/2jtDdfK Fire Extinguisher -- http://amzn.to/2jvx6Yn Irwin Quick Grips -- http://amzn.to/2zrZDF6 Flint Spark Torch Igniter - http://amzn.to/2zq1ji8 --------------------------------------------- Shop for bathroom remodeling supplies and shower kits at https://shop.bathroomrepairtutor.com/ --------------------------------------------- The first step is to cut your copper pipe. I like the AutoCut pipe cutting tool for tight spaces. It costs about $17 and simply clamps onto the pipe. Turn it in the direction of the arrow and you'll cut your pipe in about 10 seconds. Once that's done make sure to ream the pipe. You'll need a reaming tool. This helps prevent the pipe from being loud or pitting over time, which can lead to pinhole leaks. Reaming also helps the solder job. Apply a thin coat of flux, I use Laco in the video, using an acid brush. You shouldn't leave gobs of flux on the pipe. This can lead to flux getting inside the pipe and pitting. Apply a thin layer of flux to the fitting as well. Check that none of the bristles from the brush are on the pipe or fitting. This will create a gap in the solder and ultimately a leak. After fluxing, immediately put all the pipes and fittings together to avoid dirt contamination. Heat the pipe about 1-2 inches below the fitting, about 10 seconds. Then heat the fitting just behind the cup. Move your torch back and forth to heat the entire fitting. Dab the solder onto fitting/pipe transition and once it melts continue this process until the solder fills the entire fitting. Wipe down the outside of the pipe with a damp cloth to remove flux. Wear gloves, eye protection and have a fire extinguisher handy when soldering.

Tig Brazing vs Tig Welding
see the full article here https://goo.gl/4XHcfl and visit my online store http://weldmongerstore.com/ Tig Brazing is when you use a filler rod that melts at a much lower temperature than the base metal...usually silicon bronze, or aluminum bronze filler metal. So How strong is Tig Brazing? for thin wall tubing, if you can use a large braze joint with lots of braze material that is thicker than the base metal, and if you can braze all the way around, it can be pretty strong. But for a one sided fillet weld...tig brazing is pretty weak.

We cover cleaning the pipe, applying flux, heating the fitting with a blow torch and running the solder around. DIY Hello, welcome to this very quick follow up video on one we did about soldering copper pipe. Now we are going to cover a different type of copper fitting this is called a yorkshire or capillary fitting. Now if we look very close at this fittingyou will see that it has a very very small ring round here now on the inside of the fitting inside that ring is a ring of solder round the inside which basically means that you can be super lazy and not have to do a thing called end feeding solder. Put it this way, if you do it like this either you're in a really tight situation or you're not a real plumber because look minging when they're on. Anyway i'll show you very quickly how they work here we go. So really the soldering process and the cleaning process are much the same as end feed. Just get your pipe cleaner, give the pipe a good clean making sure there is nothing on the pipe, then get a flux brush, as you usually would. give it a generous coating of flux And the same with the capillary fitting itself, just get your flux brush and try and get some flux down the inside of the fitting because this is water soluble flux and when you put any water through it, it will wash away now we push the fitting on like so, and basically all we do we don't get any real heat on there at all we light our blow torch, turn it down to a nice even heat, just heat the capillary fitting up all the way, just try and get the solder to run nicely. It's running now. See that? A bit underneath so there you go beautifully soldered up that very very nice indeed once you've soldered up your capillary fitting and dropped your pipe on the floor just get your wet rag round it like you do any other soldered fitting and give it a good old clean look at that, how clean it is! But they have a horrible ring round the outside, and when they're on a nice length of copper pipe and you've got a load of end feed fittings that look really good then you got this the ugly duckling fitting that right in the middle of it all that some old boy soldered on there theres one other thing i'd say about these if your standard a standard plumber and you've been working in the trade for years you will be guilty of this because i'm guilty of it If I put one of these on a piece of pipe I always run a little bit of end feed into one of these fittings anyway just to make sure even though we don't need to I hope you found or instruction video enjoyable and it went well with the end feed video a few days ago please subscribe to our videos and facebook and twiiter your way to us we retweet pictures of stuff you've been doing specifically if you've come across plumbing disasters and we tweet our pictures too.

How to Solder a Pipe & Fix Water Lines | Basic Plumbing
Watch more Basic Plumbing videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/513654-How-to-Solder-a-Pipe-and-Fix-Water-Lines-Basic-Plumbing Okay. Let's talk about fixing water lines. Depending on what region of the country you're in, you may see PEX tubing, which is a type of plastic or something, but in the five boroughs of New York City it is exclusively copper. If it's not, you're not legal. So this is what we call half-inch, indicating the size of the pipe, half-inch type L. L is the indicator of whether you can use it for potable water, potable being clean, domestic drinking water, showering water. Okay. This is what you see throughout the city, under your sinks, everything else. This is a fairly thick-walled copper pipe, and it's easy to repair unless you have something bad happen. But generally speaking it's easy to repair. Now for the purpose of this video I'm going to show you how to solder a 90, okay, also known as an L, which is a very small fitting. This would be, for example, let's say we installed a new vanity or a kitchen cabinet. You'd have a raw copper pipe coming out like so. All right. And then you'd need to put a joint in there of some sort. It might be an L going up like so and then a valve that would shut off the supply to your sink. Okay. So for this purpose I'm just going to solder this 90. I'm going to show you how to properly do it. Ask any plumber how to solder, and you'll get any number of different stories on how to do so. This is is how I solder, not necessarily saying it's the Bible way to solder, but this is how I do it, and it's worked for me for 20 years as a Master Plumber. You need a few things. An emery cloth, this is basically sandpaper, but it's a strip. You need a fitting brush. This is a half-inch fitting brush. You need silver solder. Be careful not to get lead. It says very clearly 95 percent/5 percent. And your trusty torch. So we start by cleaning the joints to be soldered. Okay. In this case we're going to use these two pieces of pipe. You just kind of wrap it around, and you're going to clean it. Be judicious with the cleaning. Okay. I don't want to see any black marks on that recently sanded pipe. That's carbon. That will cause a leak. That's another reason I'm wearing gloves. People might call me a primadonna for doing so, but it actually keeps the oils in your hands off of the joint. This is not conducive to soldering. The oils in your hands are not conducive to soldering. So now we're going to take our fitting and our fitting brush, okay, just a wire brush. This one's kind of beat up, but it will still get the job done. Again same idea, you twist it around in there until you can see your reflection. So we've got a nice, clean 90-degree elbow. The next thing you want to do, again the gloves come in, they're very imperative here. No oils from your fingers going onto these joints. The only thing you want on these joints is acid paste, otherwise known as flux. Okay. The purpose of this, and you don't have to be too liberal. This is called an acid brush. The purpose of flux in general is when you heat the pipe to pull the silver solder into the joint. Okay. Don't ask the physics on how that works. That's just how it works. So I generally start with the fitting first. And you just need a film of it, just a little film. You don't need to paint a Picasso doing this here. So we've got the joint fluxed. We just kind of pass around the edge. Okay. We're doing a half-inch joint, so really all you need is a half-inch of flux. Okay. We don't need a ton, a big, messy, ugly pasty joint. And this stuff is all that great to get on your hands, too. We've fluxed everything now. I've got my joint together. This could be an offset in a wall. It could be anything. For any reason I could be doing this. So now I'm ready to apply heat and actually solder the joint. Again when you're using a torch, always have the fire extinguisher handy, especially if you're not a professional. Yes, I know how to use the torch better than most people that do not use it every day, but I still have a fire extinguisher right over within five feet of me. Okay. So keeping in mind now when we activate the flame on this, we don't need to blast it with as much flame as we can possibly get. There is a regulator right here that I can adjust that flame. This is an excessive flame for half-inch. It's too much heat. It will heat up too fast, and you'll see the joint actually smoke. That's not necessary. I'm only soldering half-inch. This would be a more appropriate flame for three-quarter or one-inch or something like that. So I'm going to turn this down. You can hear it. Now I've got my silver solder. One of my little quirks, I like to actually drag the emery cloth along the edge of the solder to make sure that there'

The plan is to box the locks in the next day to make it as difficult as possible to access the lock with bolt cutters or grinder

How to Identify Metals with Basic Shop Tools and the Spark Test | TIG Time
Often times we get projects from friends or viewers of the show asking us to help them out with a weld, but they don't know what the material is. If we know the part's manufacturer or we can look up a part number, we can usually find an exact material. However, there are many times when the material or part is generic or so old that there is no information that we can find. This is when we have to determine the type of metal we are about to weld on. There are a few simple ways you can narrow down material's alloy with nothing more than some magnets, a grinder and some basic senses. 9:18 - Recap of Mild / Low Carbon Steel 9:36 - Recap of Cast Iron 10:12 - Recap of Copper 10:29 - Recap of Aluminum 10:47 - Recap of Stainless Steel 11:14 - Recap of Titanium Subscribe for new TIG videos every Friday and new MIG videos every Monday!

How To Cut And Cap Off Copper Pipes
If you are doing a bath or kitchen remodel or if you have a leak, you may need to cut and cap off your water supply lines temporarily until you can repair the problem or install new valves. Here's a complete demonstration of how I do that. I demonstrate three ways of cutting copper pipes in this video, and I'll use the Shark Bite brand compression fittings to cap the lines rather than the old method of sweating on a copper cap.

Soldering a brass valve and copper pipe  👍👍👍
Soldering a brass valve and copper pipe https://www.amazon.com/shop/howtoplumbing and get all the supplys and tools you will need to solder copper pipe How to solder copper pipe and re-pipe home. Well how did this come about? I Felt that there's was a lot of people out there that like Diy projects and they do have the skill, and some of use have more time then we have money, but they all have one thing in common is they just need a little encouragement and close up on know how. And in these video I provide just that. Every shot is close up and personal. I made these videos with the mind set of , How would I want to learn by watching a videos, and this these are the results. Close up shot's of what is really going on. You know let me see move to the side man. I don't want to see you I want to see what your doing. I can't learn any thing looking at you show me that work please. Thank you! J Yep that's just how I feel when I watch a video and the guy in the videos just wants to show himself and talk and talk and talk and close to the end he show a little shot of the work. Thanks a lot Pal for wasting my time. Now in these how to solder copper pipe and re-pipe home you we learn things like How to solder copper pipe, How to keep from burning things around you, How to hang copper pipe to floor joist, how to prepare the copper pipe and pipe fitting to be soldered, Soldering copper pipe and fitting in the horizontal position, how to solder Dielectric unions on water heater with out burning the inserts, and much more. Soldering copper pipe is not as hard as it may seem with a little know how and practice you can become a pro in now time. Did you know that there are different grades of copper pipe? Yes there's Type "M" used mostly on residential job like your home and there's Type "L" use for commercial like large building and stores and even some homes were there communities water is very hard. And then there's "K" Copper This is the thickest of the copper used a lot In A/C lines. "K" copper and "L" also come in soft rolls that you can roll out up to 60' but I wouldn't recommend you use it for inside water piping unless your going to roll it out under a cement foundation called the loop system. They also have DWV copper. DWV copper is use for waste and vent in the older homes and businesses DWV Meaning Drainage Waste and Vent. You can find out the type of copper by just reading the side of the pipe the are all labeled. Its important to note when ever you use copper pipe and your going to tie it into another type of metal pipe like Galvanized you will need a transition fitting to go between the two like a dielectric union so that the two metals don't touch each other because if they do there is some thing call electrolyses that travel between the two making the metals crude out fast then normal. I buy a lot of my copper pipe from Plumbing Supply Houses, The Home Depot, Lowe's, and when you buy copper fitting and if your going to do a large job like re-pipe your home get the contractors pack and safe money. The type of flux I get is called (NOCORED ) Solder type (Lead free) any brand. Sand cloth I get the (Fiber glass cloth )good wet or dry. Gas (acetylene) in the blue bottle and your local hardware store. I Always keep a pair of Channel Lock Pliers' in my back pocket when I'm work for quick and easy access when I need to egg shape and copper fitting to stay in place. Always egg shape it when the fitting is on the pipe because if you egg shape it before that it will be hard to put on the pipe.

We show you solder tee's, push fit tee's and compression fitting tee's. We show you how to measure and cut the pipe and also the various ways of moving the pipe and springing it out to take your new tee. I hope it helps! PP! Plumberparts.co.uk. Honest reviews and advice. Welcome to today's Plumberparts.co.uk video. My name's James, and today, this is like the simplest video you could ever, ever think of doing. We've been requested to do it by a lovely one of our viewers. He's said that, "I'm trying to fit a new washing machine and I need to know how to cut a tee into some pipe." So what we're gonna do, we're gonna show you there's a few different ways of doing it. But it's all about the measurements. So this video is not gonna be very very long at all. In the meantime, if you missed out on our last video, we're gonna leave a little link to that for you to click on to watch right about here. Alright? So anyway, I hope you enjoy today's video. It's gonna be generally one and a half minutes long. And then I'll have a little chitchat with you at the end, a little bit of a debrief, a little bit of chin wag, let you know what I've been up to, all that sort of stuff. Alright, hold tight! So here we go, let's just say we've done a little mock up here. We've got some pipe that we just clipped to the wall, just like so. And we've got a few different types of fitting as well. So we've got a little hemp wired push-fit fitting and we've also got a standard NPT as well. For some reason, I couldn't find any equal tees in compressions, so just to show you how you actually do your cut, we've just got ourselves a little isolation valve just here. Now, the most important thing about this is just measuring how much pipe you cut out, okay? This job can be quite difficult if you don't have any flex in the pipe. Whereby, what I mean by that is if you cut this, if you just did one cut, and you could just pull them apart, and then pop your tee in and then pop it back together, then that'd be really easy, wouldn't it? You'd be like, oh my god, I've just done it, it was so easy, why do I even have to watch a video? But that pretty much never, ever happens. So, I mean, most plumbers won't know, I mean, I know exactly how much to take out. If I'm doing a tee, usually the width of your little finger, if you've got a finger that's about a centimetre wide. If you've got chubby fingers, then obviously make account for that, alright? Maybe half it out, if you're a chubby person. Let's say, right, basically if you've got some clips here like this, what you're gonna need to do, if you want to get your pipe slice around, because really, you should be using a pipe slice for this sort of job. If you've got a hacksaw, then you're not gonna have to worry about it so much. But the thing is, is you're gonna have to take off and try and remove the old clips, okay? Easy to pop a clip off. You should just get yourself a little slotted screwdriver, get under there like that. As you can see, that clip's been undone a few times. It's a little bit knackered. And then what you're gonna be out to do is just pry us this pipe off just like so. And pretty much then, get your cutter under here like that, okay? And then you use the arrow on your cutter to know which way to rotate it. Anyway, as you're probably aware, subscribers of old, legends, beasts, gentry of the plumbing world, this is a very very simple video. But let's just come along and watch it anyway for the ride. I've just knelt in a load of water. Oh my god! God, this is turning into a really realistic video. Basically, what I say is, I always go width of the little finger. If you really really want to do it properly, you can get yourself a pencil, pop the tee on the thing, and then basically use the sides of the shoulders of the tee and mark a little bit of pencil line there and there. This is if you don't have any flex. If you've got flex, you don't have to worry about it. You can just cut it like this. (laughs) Just like that. And then once you've cut it, obviously, if you've got enough flex, you've got a small gap here, we should just be able to grab this bit of pipe or one of these pieces of pipe and pull that away. So once they're pulled away enough and you can slide your fitting in, so let's say we're gonna do this solder fit in here. Obviously we put flux on this.

Connecting PEX Tubing to Copper Pipe
Connecting PEX to Copper Hey everyone, this is Mark from SupplyHouse.com and I'm going to show you what you need to do to connect your PEX tubing to copper pipe. For this video, we will be using all ½ pipe pieces as examples. The fastest and easiest way to connect PEX directly to copper pipe is by using SharkBite connections. These connections require no tools and no soldering. If you aren't using SharkBite connections you will need a copper pipe adapter also known as a female sweat adapter. First, the copper side will slide right over the copper pipe to be soldered. You should do the soldering first to avoid any risk of damaging your PEX tubing. You then connect your PEX tubing to the other side using a PEX connection. If you are connecting PEX to an existing fitting, you will need to use a copper fitting adapter also known as a male sweat adapter. This may be the case if your copper pipe is connected to an elbow or other type of fitting and you don't want to cut your pipe. The copper side will slide right into the existing fitting to be soldered. You then connect your PEX tubing to the other side using a PEX connection. The main thing to remember is the difference between copper pipe adapters and copper fitting adapters. Copper pipe adapters slide over copper pipe, while Copper fitting adapters slide into existing fittings already on your pipes. If you are connecting PEX to something with national pipe thread, we also have male and female threaded adapters. National pipe thread is a generic thread you can get at any store; you simply screw on the threaded end, and the PEX end will be connected using a PEX connection. Fittings are named based on the size of the pipe they work with. Copper pipe sizing refers to the inner diameter of the pipe. For example, a ½ inch pipe adapter doesn't actually measure ½ inch. It simply fits over the ½ copper pipe. For more information about PEX to copper fittings and adapters, visit our website at www.supplyhouse.com or email us with any questions.

How to Seamlessly Join Two Pieces of Pipe - Kevin Caron
From http://www.kevincaron.com - Artist Kevin Caron shows how to seamlessly weld together two pieces of metal pipe, rod or square tubing .... Sometimes you are working on a project - making a fence, a cage, whatever - and your pipe or rod is a little short, so you want to add a piece of scrap to get your correct length and have a smooth piece of pipe. To show you how to join them to make a single piece of metal pipe or rod, Caron starts by taking two lengths of metal pipe over to his chopsaw. But before he puts his stock into the saw, he uses his framing square to check against the backstop and the blade to make sure the chopsaw is set at 90 degrees before he makes his cut. Once that's confirmed, he secures the stock. Caron emphasizes, though, that when you put your stock into the chopsaw, you don't have to crush it - just make sure it's snug. He puts on his safety glasses and hearing protection, then cuts off the ends of both of the pieces he is going to join to get a clean, straight area. Next he goes over to his bench grinder, which he's modified so he can add a 4-1/2" soft pad - which he usually uses on his hand-held angle grinder - on the outside of the grinding wheel. He dresses the edge of each pipe, giving it a nice chamfer, or bevel, and touches the flat end of the pipe to remove any burrs so it will jig up neatly. He lays both pieces of pipe on a piece of thick-walled angle iron, which gives him a straight 90-degree edge - the angle iron is great for square tubing and pipe. Everything fits together and lines up so he can weld down into the joint. He has a good kerf that gives ample penetration while allowing him to grind the welded joint smooth and flush. Next he clamps down each pipe with a Kantwist clamp, which has an X in its bottom pad that lets you lock everything in place. Because it's a tiny joint, Caron uses 1/16" E3 tungsten sharpened almost to a point and some 1/16" filler rod in his TIG welder. Caron then tacks both sides of the pipe because a single tack on the top can result in a bow. Then he welds a small tack on the top, rolls the pipe over, reclamps it, and gets a tack on the other side. So now he has tacked it on all four "corners." Then he welds between the tacks. When the welding is done, he lets the pipe cool down a minute or two, then uses his 4-1/2" angle grinder with a soft pad to smooth the surface. Caron checks his work with a straight edge, looking for light between the pipe and the straight edge. Finally, he can finish the job with some 80 grit and some 120 grit with long passes to hide the weld. For more how-to videos, visit http://www.kevincaron.com
