When you say welding, do you mean brazing?

Any 5% or 15% silver rod for copper would do, maybe try a local welding or refrigeration wholesaler, or even model steam engine people on ebay or such.

Yes ... unusual to weld copper, like MS says its usually brazed.

What pipes are you actually joining?
