    How timely. I just started up on my copper-tubing vertical laptop stand project. Youtube has plenty of videos explaining copper soldering better than this video. I recommend a pipe cutter, it was only $9 at Lowe’s, probably less elsewhere. But you get nice clean, straight cuts with less effort than a hacksaw.
