I making a small pan or scupper to shed water from a parapet style opening on a tile & masonry porch. It's a very tight area, 8" wide by 3" inches high and needs to be formed form two pieces to fit into the double-wythe wall. The goal is just to shed water into a small conductor, so it's more functional than cosmetic. I've been making mock-ups with aluminum roll to practice (definitely a newbie at this). I've cut and folded leafs to form two small pans that connect. Could a plumbers torch be used to solder some lap joints? or what is the minimum wattage iron i'd need? Im looking to get a good permanent seal without relying on sealants, but probably have no other use for soldering after this.
