i am building a copper alcohol still from standard 2'' copper pipe and fittings and would like to know if you can tig weld the joints with copper wire instead of soldering or brazing and what it would take to do it, i have never seen copper tig welded thanx

yes you can, it takes a lot of amperage and when it melts , it melts fast.
