[Favorite tips] Chain Soldering

When soldering hollow link chains or other fine chains do not use a
solder pick. The pick will act as a heat sink, drawing heat away from
part of the chain. This makes it easy for the remaining chain to
melt.Brad Simon CMBJ

Brad, I actually use the fact that the solder pick works as a heat
sink and heat the solderpick away from the link I am soldering. After
picking up a ball of solder.I touch the ball of solder to the link and
heat the solder pick just above it bathing some of the link with
residual heat from the torch.What do you use to put the solder on with
if not a pick?J Morley Coyote Ridge Studio
