    Maybe this is why my experience was bad.

  5. So anything above a #2 tip on MC tanks is dangerous ? The Rosebud dilemma

    Problem: Brazing 1-1/8 or larger requires a lot of heat. Two torches on the joint isn't always an option, and I don't think a #2 tip should be used past 7/8 copper unless absolutely necessary.
