Re: Merging copper tubing for primary

If you have a low voltage, high current, transformer you can connect
its secondary across the join and use the resistance of the joint to
create the heat for soldering.  I do it all the time for joining the
regular household copper water pipes if the joint to be made is in a
awkward place to use a torch.  Around 5 volts at 60 amps works great.
