I would like your suggestions on how to get extra solder
filed/sanded/removed from a hard-to-get-to spot.
On a sterling silver piece of sheet metal, I have a bezel with a
90 degree angle and a small ball soldered into the corner just
outside the bezel. Unfortunately too much solder was used and a
little bit bled out onto the surface of the piece. Below is a
sketch of the area looking at it from above with less than 1/8"
from bezel to edge of the piece. The O represents the ball (duh)
and x represents the Xtra solder. I can’t really get the point of
a flat file into the corner and a piece of sandpaper doesn’t fit
really well either.
Would a sanding disk on a flexshaft be too abrasive and remove
too much of the ball and/or the surface of the piece? What should
I use to get that little bit off? A burr?
