How much heat - and where to apply it (hint: heat the fitting, not the tubing!)
Prep is a good 75%. Clean tubing ends and the inside of the fittings, apply a thin
coat of the appropriate flux, assemble and heat the fitting just to the point that the solder goes nicely fluid and sucks into the joint...
