so since it says not for use one stainless steel water tubing i take it to mean its not foodsafe so thats not gona work for maple syrup! this is a bit of a problem, the maple equipment dealer sells lead free solder for stainless and the flux to go with it, but for a long time now they have been outa the flux and dont know when they will be able to get more, and they dont know exactly what is was either the lady said, no brand or trade name etc.
I take it as no presure as in water piping,Thats a fda spec,thats in there,Your fixing pans,Not pressure piping,correct? Thanks,Jack

***by 95/5 you mean 95 tin and 5 lead? or something else? and the flux you use is that the liquid stuff they sell in the hardware stores?***

The 95/5 was Tin/Antimony and yes the Flux was liquid but I used to purchase both at a plumbing shop.
Did a lil digging and both are Harris products

Buying things like this from a sugar dealer is a sure fire way to go broke. Save your money for a good vacume pump for the woods
