I use binding wire or pins on a regular basis to hold things in
place for soldering or fusing. It has always been my practice to make
sure that the parts fit before soldering. Since I work that way, I do
not need to be able to move things as I solder or fuse.
I have always thought it best to make sure that everything fits, and
is held in place, so that I can focus on the application of the heat,
and making sure the joining process goes well. This way, I don’t have
to worry about bumping a piece out of alignment when I nudge a piece
The binding wire does not tend to attach or fuse to the AS. As with
ANY metal, make sure to put a zig-zag in the wire, so that it can
expand and contract without digging into the metals being joined.
