Leaking joint

Unread postAuthor: Copperboy » Tue Jul 10, 2007 8:18 am

Hi guys! Been a while since I visited this page, but it still rocks:).
I have a small problem, more precisely a small leak in my soldering job.. It´s just a really small hole, you can´t see it but you can hear all the air getting out through it. I hope to get around re-soldering, and was thinking about using epoxi glue (after cleaning away all the grease, of course) and maybe trying to put some vacuum in the chamber while applying it. Have any experiences or thoughts you wanna share?:)

Just apply heat via a blowtorch to the joint where is it leaking.

only heat it up enough so you can stick a glob of solder where it leaks. dose the job fine on all my guns =)

if your having problems fining the leak just put some soapy water on the joint, the leak will start to bubble. you could use epoxy and it would probably work fine but your still better off re-soldering it
