Now that Cookson stock Argentium, there's no excuse for putting off the new project, which is fusing Argentium wire for a new link-in-link bracelet.

I have also bought a new Durston vermiculite soldering board, just to start off clean. The size is so generous that I think I shall cut it into smaller pieces with a saw.

I like to use vermiculite board, because it is easy to push in a few ordinary household pins to keep components in contact for soldering.

You do have to insert pins well away form the joint though, to avoid getting one stuck to your piece. Dennis.
