    Default Just Hello!

    Im an average beader, who dabbles in everything.
    Past few years I've been working with sea glass,
    Pottery, pebbles and shells, for indoor and outdoor
    Pieces, im here to find out about metals and
    joining them with heat.

    Hello and welcome. Some metals can be joined just by fusing, but for most of those we use, hallmarking quality solder is required. Soft soldering with a hot iron is a definite no no.

    For most purposes start by practising with strip solder (easy, or hard) on copper, which is a cheap option. Dennis.
