...Does anyone know a good match colour solder for brass?
Mel, go back through the Orchid Archives and look for discussions on
this topic. In the meantime, visit a shop selling welding/brazing
supplies and look for a 1/16" (diameter) brazing rod with a brass
color (not plated). Try to buy a single one for experimentation.
Hammer out a short length of it (it’s somewhat brittle). Snip that up
into little squares. Use the high-temperature flux (probably black),
and try soldering with this “solder.”
I find this to be a decent color match (not perfect). You can only
use it with brass which does not contain more than 15% Zn; otherwise,
it will melt before the solder does.
Let us know if you find other options.
