Elmo B says:

that’s not pipe that’s tubing

Moonlight Moe says:

If your main shut off doesn’t shut off enough to stop the drips, you can shove a piece of bread in the pipe, (not the crust). The water will make it turn to mush and wash right out.

Edgar Lee says:

Thanks for this kind of stuff, Will. Much better than my crappy Reader’s Digest D.I.Y. books that I can now throw away.

David Gouin says:

Finally something I can use, never attempted this skill. There have been many times I could have used it! Thanks

Bluelightbandit says:

It’s a shame that I didn’t have videos like this when I was younger. Kids these days have it made. I learned the hard way that you had to heat the work piece first instead of applying heat to the solder…oh well, nice video!
