I had one customer that tried soldering on 1/2" Male Adapters under his cabinets. He almost burned the house down. The chome plate behind the stop was almost melted.
by the way, use light oil on the threads, like WD40,
: Yea, and since the compression nut and sleeve stay on the pipe even when you have to replace the stop, seems like replacement would be fairly simple. I guess I did not see the downside to compression fittings. Thanks, folks!
: : If the compression fitting is installed correctly, it will last forever. Since stops need to be replaced, I think it is folly to solder them.
