I received a Pro-Craft soldering machine for Christmas and am
trying to figure out how best to use the beast. I’ve managed to
get decent results on jumprings – this being one of the things
I’ve had difficulty doing with my torch. I don’t like using a
torch next to any kind of spring clasp. I had hoped to use this
machine for tricky repairs such as fine chain, plated or
gold-filled jewelry, etc.; however, the thing came with the most
basic of instructions (ie. “plug in and step on foot control to
turn on”) and I’m not doing very well experimenting on my own.
If anyone out there has been using this or any similar equipment
I’d really appreciate any tips or advice you’d be willing to give
Thanks in advance.
