: I thought I would try soldering a 16" by 22" zinc framed stained glass
: piece to 3/4 copper pipe. I found however that the pipe is too much of a
: heat sink to do a smooth good looking job. Has anyone else tried this
: with any success? I am using a 100W Weller soldering iron.
I don't think that you can heat that much copper pipe with a 100W iron.
You'll need to using something like a plumber's torch to heat it.
If you're careful, and keep the flame mostly on the pipe, I think you'll
be OK. The pipe will probably discolor, but you can clean that up
