    remember i was good for roughly 400 stops a day, installed and tested. waiting for water to stop dripping and prepping to solder would be down to less than 100.

    there is absolutely nothing wrong with a compression stop. remember the outlet side is either a compression connection or a slip joint connection.

    now if you want to have an angle stop competition at the next roundup, i'll be glad to put that trophy next to the 4 that arrived today

    I never said I was against them. Most inspectors here will not allow them.
    I dont do commercial so your argument about doing 400 a day is meaningless to me. Speed is not really a concern for the 3 that I would install for a bathroom renovation.

    Oh hey congrats on the trophey's but if you want to have a contest lets have one at the round up for nicest looking solder joints, to me thats a contest. Any takers?

      Re: Leaking shutoff

      i have seen out here the plumbers use a solder stop with a chrome tube on them

      way back in the old days when i did it i used a solder stop and chromed the pipe so it looks good
      the only time i went close to the wall was on a pedestal sinks thats how we did it when i had to walk to the jobs in 3ft of snow

        I'm out of the contest on the best looking solder joints. Some of mine look like Stevie Wonder did them after about 5 espressos.

              Good point though

              adam me too

              i had issues with washing machine valves. there was a brand we used at 1 time that was a combination compression and mip. those were the bad ones and i had our shop change brands.

                I'm soo clever ,It hurts. I have a great shop. Carpentry and welding. So nice to be able to weld steel,S.S. allum. I re-inforced one of My ferral pullers,to the Max. I call Her MAD MAX. Ist nasty old pull,was a disaster. 5000 ft lbs of Irish forarm,and it's movin. You guessed it .Extruded that copper down about 3/16 in diameter. Cut and solder
                I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

                              Upto 6 pages on this already

                              I got it done today - took less than a minute. The old nut came off easily, the threads matched and it was easy to work on since the sink has not yet been installed.
