Default Re: unknown brass hookah

Seems very familiar especially the stamp on the tray here is my brass one I repaired that also suffered from loose Port and Purge syndrome I used solid core solder with a acid flux (plumbers solder) and a gas blowtorch to do the repairs also have a piece of braided soft copper handy to use a a solder wick to suck up the extra solder. where gaps are large take some thin copper strands and twist them around the port and move them into the gap then solder over them after fluxing it play with the heat and don't just slam heat on one spot so that the piece can gently heat. watch the other solder areas so that the heat does not spread to much and start de-soldering other joints
