    Hey guys,
    I have an old Svea 123 with a cracked vaporizer tube ](*,) . Is solder an option for repair or will it melt away when the stove is lit? The break is at the spindle tube joint.

    I would think that silibrazing would work...

    Definitely silbrazing! Solder is way too soft for this application.

    Good luck!

    Best regards,
