I need to solder two copper fittings to a very short length of 1/2"
When I put both fittings on the pipe, then the amount of pipe showing
between them is about 1/8" inch.
I first soldered on one fitting and then tried to attach the second.
My fear, though, is that I am ruining the first joint when I solder
the second. Is this a concern? In this situation should I try to
solder both joints at the same time or do them separately?
Heat it up and get both. Don't apply any solder until it will melt a little
in the gap. Then heat for another 5-10 seconds, withdraw heat, apply solder
and let it suck it up. Do not apply any more heat. Make a stand or
something for it to rest on that will not burn and that will hold it in
