    Default 14k solder

    I'm looking for some 14k yellow gold solder in either wire (my preference) or paste form. Has anyone come across any in the UK? I'd normally get it from the US, but the post over there seems to have ground to a complete standstill again, and the courier options are SO expensive for such a tiny thing.

    Any suggestions welcome!

    I had a look around George, and all I could find was some 14ct solder wire on Etsy, but it's xeasy.

    And this paste on Amazon the same : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yellow-Gold.../dp/B0058ED10O

    You probably found these and dismissed them. Dennis.

    Actually, I hadn't spotted the one from Israel, and as this is for a single solder job, I could probably get away with extra easy. I might give them a try. Thanks Dennis

    I got some pre-cut pallions from The Curious Gem as I only wanted a small quantity. They have easy, medium and hard 14ct yellow.

    Sorry, just re-read your post and realise you are actually looking for wire or paste ��*♀️.

    I have these too, and they're fine, but for this particular application, paste or wire just work better - with a slight preference for wire. I'll report back on the results!
