  • Where do I look for onsite training?

    I'm a manufacturing engineer. I've been tasked with figuring out where to go to find someone who can come in and do some training (for a couple weeks) on copper soldering.

    What kinds of places should I look at? I thought about the plumber's union. Sometimes unions can be a bit restrictive.

    I've got some spare time.
    Where would you like me to be?
    How many will I be training?

        Aren't you guys the ones that are still using the "will burn a hole in the pipe & fitting if left on too long" acid flux?

          not us.

          california was the first to use water soluble flux and i was involved in testing some of the formulas that needed real field testing. not laboratory testing.

          lead free solder was not too difficult to make the transition to.

          water soluble flux was the nightmare. especially in the repair sector when you actually have water in the line.

          the best water safe flux and lead free solder is called "propress"

            I hope you can tell I was being a little sarcastic in my response.

            What water soluble fluxes have you had luck with out of curiousity?

            Hey Bentod - I heard for extra $$$ Plumber Rick will do the soldering demonstrations in a bikini.

              i think the choice we seem to agree on is "everflux"

              in the old days it was "nokorode"
