I need some help. I am wanting to do some soldering on copper for things such as an IC, MLT Manifold, etc. but I am not sure about keeping it "food safe". My background is in electronics so all the soldering I have done is with a soldering iron and don't really have to worry about it coming in contact with food.

Does anyone know of a good site for tutorials on how to solder copper for these projects? What kind of flux to use? WHat kind of solder?

Don't worry about it. If you are buying the supplies now you will not find any with lead in them. I'd just head to home depot and buy one of the kits. They are designed for you water supply so they will be safe.

check out youtube lots of videos there.

Good luck

I overheated my first few attempts and had the solder boiling. Had to clean them up and start over. I recommend practice before the real deal.. Easily done though.
