Soldering a cracked dishwasher tub

17 July 2012 - 11:45 PM


My stainless tub dishwasher has a 3 inch crack and leaking. I'm planning on soldering it to fill and weld the crack. I'd like to hear suggenstions as to what type of solder to use for this type of repair (welding crack on stainless).

I also tried silver bearing rosin solder, but wouldn't stick and just ball up (the kind used on circuit boards). I thought my next effort would be to use a butane pen torch ($2 on ebay). However, I'm not quite sure what type of solder would be best for what I'm trying to accomplish.


Furnace and A/C removal

17 July 2012 - 11:19 PM

My friend is replacing his furnace and a/c with a new one. He wants me to have the old one, but he said I would need to hire a license tech to remove it from his house and evacuate the system. I thought evacuating the system's freon is unecessary since I'm reusing the A/C and not taking it to the dump. I thought it would benefit me to keep the freon within it.

Could someone please comment. Is it necessary to evacuate the freon from the system even though the A/C it's going to be reused.
