Subject: Solvent Welding of PVC
In response to your inquiry to Phil Papoojian and Bob Malloy, the best 
solvent for welding PVC is cyclohexanone.  For more volatile solvents, you could try 
methyl ethyl ketone or dimethyl sulfoxide.

I will be away March 25-30.  If you want to discuss this further, I would be 
interested in your project.
