Hi, I’m new to the list, but enjoying it and learning a lot so far,
thanks! I’ve been doing jewelry repair for over 3 years now, and I
really enjoy it. I have a lot to learn, about a lot of things, but
for now I have a problem. I am trying to put leverbacks on a pair of
14k/diamond studs, but I cant seem to get my solder to flow before
the leverback gets hot enough to stop the spring from snapping back.
I have tried everything I know including heat sinking, coating, etc.
Thanks in advance,
Connie in Louisiana
