Soldering

  • Ok.... so what is this and how do I use it? It came with a small oxy/acetylene torch kit like what a plumber would use.

    Do the sticks have a flux coating on them?

    fact is it is within a year of the election, the Senate will not allow him to appoint her successor. Nov 2020 he will lose.

  • No coating at all that I can see.. they are maybe 3/16" wide by a few thirty seconds thick. about 2 foot long... have a shitload of em in the package.

  • You need to use some type of flux with them. I've personally never used that low of silver content. My guess is that it will be like using more of a braze than silver solder. Meaning it will be stronger but it takes more heat to get it to stick and flow.

  • One thing with using oxy acetylene to silver solder is to use a "3 feather carburizing flame". That means that you get your torch to a neutral flame and then add acetylene until the carburizing flame is 3 times as long. That is a slightly "colder" flame and you're less likely to burn the solder.


    This is a good example.

  • Sooo.. no idea on what kind of flux to use on it? I guess it is for filling where more silver content would not fill?

    Probably.


    I use Harris Stay-Silv, Wolverine makes the same thing as well.

  • No that the lower content of the silver will probably act better as a filler.

  • only soldering I really do is installing dui interlocks. I just use a simple soldering iron. when i'm doing very small gauge wires, I dissolve a little solder onto the iron first, then touch it to the wire to transfer it over.

  • As a sideline would hand solder these,
