Having the right tools makes it a lot simpler.
thank you - simple is good.
Thank you Scott.
I'm getting ready to braze flex line to my accumulator and then compressor. It is good to get all you copper laid out and ready to braze all at once if possible. You can't leave a compressor with POE oil open very long without the oil absorbing moisture out of the air. That will ruin the oil. So you leave the compressor sealed until your ready to braze the suction line and service line on. Evap, flex line, cap tube, and accumulator all need to be brazed together and then you braze that assembly onto the compressor. You need to run an inert gas such as nitrogen through the lines as you braze so you don't get oxidation inside the copper lines.
