Yeah you can't use a soldering iron to piece copper or brass together. You would need a torch (either propane or mapp gas) , some flux, and some solder but there is different kinds of solder.
Anyway tell your folks that they can pick up a cheap deal for 100 bucks down at any harbor freight and tell your dad that you'll learn how to use it and you'll fix anything he needs fixed. I do agree with Mr. Steve about the bong. There could be a lot more degenerate things you could be doing than welding a spud gun or whatever.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

Hope this isn't a late post or anything, but tell them that there are a bunch of college scholarships for people who weld. I'm actually serious on this one. It almost worked for me :?

Well... after learning how to weld at my grandpas place, my mom actually considered getting a MIG. So we go to the shop and then she saw the price of one and all my hopes and dreams flew out (or through) the window like a spud at supersonic speed...
