  • Is it eutectic? If not, I don’t want it. Eutectic solders like 63/37 tin/lead make for some of the best joints. Eutectic blends have little or no plastic stage between liquid and solid… they solidify very quickly, making it harder to make cold solder joints by moving the piece as it cools.
    I personally use some Kester 63/37 with a “no clean” flux. I have a big bottle of inorganic, water soluble flux that I usually use along with it. Despite being water soluble it’s AMAZING, although it WILL corrode your piece if you don’t quickly clean it off.

No public wish lists :(
