Hey man - amazing what a piece of steel wool can do for a new solder job - spend a couple bucks on some, give it some elbow grease and it will look like a pro did it!

So long as it doesn't leak I'm happy with how it looks now, tis all shiny after I sanded it afterwards. Once I've got the other parts and run some water through the thing I'll see if I screwed up real bad :P

Well it's not pretty, but it works. Boiling water down to the same temperature as the tap-water. Nice.
