    Oh no. I think if you screw up the easy step, moving on to a more involved procedure is definitely the way to go.

    i worked as both plumber and HVAC tech before I found my calling and as stupid as it sounds I can't sweat copper but I can braise line sets (copper) all day those who know know what I'm saying. Thank "God" for shark bite and JB Weld!

    And MY post 3030!
    Wait, that's my number of groans received...

    Oh! Make sure to use an UNUSED round for the casing patch. THAT way there is a small but certain chance that when soldering something interesting happens. Very interesting.

    Mr. Krabs: So, ya tried to kill me over a little new-age management, eh?!

    Gordon, you can't simply do this to someone who is trying some new-age method of managing a trumpet!

    It is strange that we have not heard from the OP.

    Here is what I found : Brass horn repair with ice

    If you get a "Join Page" just press ESC to clear it. It does read like Dumb & Dumber.

    I am getting the feeling (again) that we are having our legs pulled. Notice how many threads this OP starts, chucks a hand grenade, and does not come back, but watches all of us discuss and get involved. I gave this OP a second chance, but I think I am outta here. Used up my goodwill, I don't think he is really this stupid.

    I am not against DIY - but I do think we are being taken for fools.

    Didn't I read somewhere that lightly tapping an unused round into a receiver was a great way of dedenting old leadpipes?

    What's that word that starts with a "T"......? Those creatures that roam the cyber world posting anything and everything to get a rise out of people...? Dang, I can't seem to remember...although I do know we aren't supposed to feed them.

    Moving on. I look forward to tomorrow's new rotary trumpet thread asking more questions that have been answered already. Speaking of which: Thank you barliman for all the incredible information that you've shared in the last month or so. I for one have learned quite a bit!
