I have a 14k yellow money clip that I need to attach a 14k charm to.
If I solder the piece to the clip, followed by 60 minutes in a kiln
at 360 C, air cooling afterwards, am I going to end up with a nice
springy money clip? Or, am I going to have that sinking feeling that
I need to replace a money clip for a customer?
I’ve searched for answers and this process was the best I could come
up with. I can heat sink the curve in the clip to keep from
annealing it while soldering if that would help to maintain the
spring properties that it already has. I’m just not sure if I really
need to anneal the whole piece prior to age hardening it, or if this
quick heat soak will work just fine for me.
Any tid-bits of help would be appreciated.
