I have yet to understand why regular soldering won't work. What is the working pressure of the system? Why do you think that regular solder won't work?

If regular solder won't work why not silver solder? I don't know what the working strength of a silver soldered joint is but two pieces of copper tube joined by this method aren't going to come apart easily...

Hey I got an idea, how about JB weld that should hold and is inexpensive.

If you could get the JB Weld "inside" the joint between the two pieces of tube you might be surprised how well it would hold........not as strong as solder, though...

If this was standard fitting where you could sweat the solder between a tight fitting joint, I am sure it would be just fine, BUUUUTT...

Well there are a lot of unanswered questions.
Is this repairing a busted tube that split or cracked, solder will not hold?
This guy is trying to go super cheap, so is he trying to butt weld a joint?
If it is near the compressor, how bad is the vibration, braze is stronger than solder.
The options are endless...

I just hope javaboy takes lotsa pictures and video and posts when he is done.
