Joe: Thank you for posting that. I have done it other ways but this guy simplifies the procedure in ways that are very useful and I will use next time. Gil

I don't see anyway this video simplifies the process there are so many ways this could go south .i don't understand why you wouldn't want to wire up or use fixtures to do top and bottom ribs and lump at one time.i had a look at youtube videos most good shotgun mfg.wire up there barrels when soldering them together

I will fully wire up but the video did demystify (simplify) the process in general for me

Great video to show how to do it right. I have checked many of my doubles that "rang" and have found that I could still slip a .001 feeler gage in spots on some. So the bottom ribs and some of the top ribs on a lot are not 100% soldered the whole length. If you do any rust bluing you can see for yourself bubbles coming out from different areas of the rib. If it held up for 80-100 years it will probably hold up for another 80-100 years.

As an aside to the topic I “discovered” a quick way to find out if ribs are loose or have pinholes. I pull the front bead and jury rig a plastic tip to my small air compressor which I press down on the bead hole. I put some mixed water and detergent in the valleys between the ribs and tubes then turn on the compressor. Any leaks will immediately show up as bubbles in the soapy water. Since I am only pressing the plastic tip of the compressor to the bead hole there is no way to put too much pressure under the rib. Works like a charm. Obviously, the barrels are in a horizontal position while doing this.

Good idea, Joe, but if the barrels are held vertically while you're doing this how are bubbles formed? The soapy water would all run off.

Did you mean "horizontally"?

Stan....Are you insinuating that Joe has a hard time distinguishing his S from a hole in the rib soldering.....
