A few years ago I had to repair a 2" copper line on a building air conditioning system. We found the leak in a chase between the third and fourth floors. In order to make the repair, I was standing on the top of the third floor wall with my left foot, the right was just hanging out in the air of the chase. I had my left arm wrapped around the support for the pipe and held a mirror in my left hand to see the hole that had been rubbed in the copper. I had my turbotorch handle in my right hand pointed kinda back toward my face while my partner held the tank off the floor so the hose would reach where I was working. And (the best part) I had to hold the stick of SilPhos in my teeth.
Not something I care to repeat.
How bout your story?
