Hi Forum

I am trying to find a local plumber, perhaps retired - who might be willing to teach me a bit about soldering. I have a DIY job which is just a little bit above my pay grade. I want to learn how to do it and have everything needed but a teacher! I have tried to find a local plumber but the job is too small for most (just changing out a rad but will involve soldering and sweating out a pipe - not a like for like replacement).

There will be obviously cash in hand or alternatively money behind the bar at a local of their choice!

Any suggestions please DM me.

Happy Easter!

It's admirable that you are prepared to learn skills like this.
In my experience, 'end feed' and compression joints depend more on preparation than skill.
I hope you find the plumber-tutor.
