Welding Answered

I am currently in the process of making a pneumatic air-gun, I have previously made one out of PVC but had major leakage problems.. Ive moved on to metal..

Will high pressures break the welds and fly off and hit me in the face?? What pressures?
Can I weld brass to steel?

If you weld properly steel will take higher pressures than PVC. You should check the pipe (data sheet / specification) for it's pressure rating. No you can't weld brass to steel: use threaded connectors instead. L
