Don, I have a piece of the 24K microalloy, but have yet to use if
for the original purpose for which I intended…making a ring. The
reason is that it requires a special solder (according to its
producer) and he has not had it available, although perhaps he does
now. I think that if you design something that does not require
soldering, it is safer, unless you have this “special” solder.
I imagine that I am not the only slightly frustrated person who has
encountered this. I’m sure that he heard about it at SNAG.
What I need to do is to experiment with it using regular plumb
solder and just see what happens. I just haven’'t gotten to it. I
have only rolled it down from its original dimension, and it was
quite easy, with no annealing.
Of course, he won’t divulge the secret ingredient. I wish we could
know what it is. Do you know?
