Brass! Talk to me..
So i'm interested in a Brass project and wanted a quick run down of what is required to get started working with brass, specifcally joining Brass to Brass.
If it helps this is for a project for an eNMEy.
Essentially I hate the plastic body looks wise and wanted to change is for a sort of brass sleeve, thought it would look nice. Then attached to the brass sleave over the feed port would be a second tube that could be used to attach an Empire sniper springfeed, just the spring tube and feed knob. The idea being to keep the whole profile on the marker as low as possible.
So I need to know what are the recommended techniques used to join/weld brass together (Really not sure on the terminollogy).

Usually it's soldered with a propane torch. Much like the copper pipes used for plumbing

Itsv a softer metal, so you solder it together versus welding. Grasb a torch and proper solder and go. A good pipe cutter is invaluable as well.
My Feedback (still growing!!)

Search around the custom and sheridan sections, especially for bigoldskool, MaD, Tymcneer, and WALZ. They and others have dropped some good tips and pics over the years. Try "solder", "flux", "tube" and maybe some sort of sheridan key word.
Old Project - This is what started me building markers, again.
Some of WALZ's pics have faded away, but there's still good info in the text.
