Greetings, you masters of metals! I have googled and boobled and
searched the archives with abandon, but I cannot seem to find a
recipe for “blue gas flux”. Surely someone knows! I was given a
sample by someone I cannot seem to track down, and now the stash is
I have found that using it in place of paste flux for balling the
ends of sterling and 18kt gold wire for headpins and earwires, I
experience much less frequent pitting.
Would also like to know why this might be…(admitting I am still
a bit of a novice with the torch), and what experiences any of you
might have had with it.
Thanks for any input, this digest is always a pleasure to read.
Much obliged! M
