One of the most common beginner tips is take the torch and soldering directly under the pipe. This may not seem like an issue at first, however, it can cause some serious problems. For example, extra solder can drip down onto the torch. This can then harden on the torch and render it unusable. This may mean that you have to put your project on pause and spend even more money and time on finding and buying a new torch. To avoid this potential issue, make sure you are not using too much solder to keep it from dripping. Also solder the bottom from a slight angle so that any potential drips do not land on the torch head.
