I made a soft soldered meth tank to replace the original one that JVR did on the NORD Atlantic; because it had been made of tinplate and was rusted through and leaked causing a bad meth fire. It works fine although it has a risk of overheating if there is a fire underneath it. It has worked for about ten years now. Theoretically though they should be silver soldered. Its just that at the time I had no silver solder experience but a great deal of soft solder experience. One advantage of soft solder is that it will fill the cracks more easily than silver solder will. Well Happy new year folks,
Simon
