    Looks nice and neat. Good idea with the heat shield. I usually use a small cotton welding blanket on mine. Forgive my ignorance but is that staybright 8? I've heard of people using it but I've never tried it. Over here we have to shield the low voltage wire when it runs outside so carflex is our best friend.

    It's leftover tape, from taping it to pipes to run nitrogen through them.

    Wow. Those braze joints are amazing then. No crowns or under globs. Nice work.

    Those finished joints look Really nice.

    What work was done to them and the lines set ends between the time the torch was removed until this picture was taken?

    Just a little sanding to remove flux and even out the color. High silver bearing silver solder is expensive, not something you want globbed up and dripping all over.😀

    Hell; I don't want even the least expensive solder globbed up and dripping all over. <g>

    That silver soldering wire really Does flow nice, doesn't it? I am always happy using it. I use it fairly often bought a case of it some years ago at a bankruptcy auction sale because it was labeled: Tie Wire <g> I forget the exact winning bid at this point but I'm sure it was less that $5.00 <g>

    I recognized the clean-up because one time, in an early-on tech school setting, a soldered-up series of 3/8" OD copper swedge joints was shown to me as the example of the standard I should be aspiring to and working towards achieving.

    The actual project was to create a working example of The Basic Refrigeration Cycle.

    I was welding and soldering and brazing when I was 13-14 years old - I knew how to solder. But it took me a while to realize what their trick was. The joints were all perfect - because they has been dressed to perfection. There wasn't even that little tinned-spot where the solder wire had first touched the joint. <g>

    The second second I saw your picture that long ago incident immediately popped into my head. <g>
