Hi Debbie N.,
My thanks to Cynthis Eid and Elaine Luther for your answers to my fusing question. As you both stated that soldering is a better solution to closing a ring or bracelet form, what are your recommedations for the best solders, fluxes, etc. to use. Thank you, again and in advance.
I like to use the Argentium solders, since they match the color of
AS better, and tarnish less than traditional silver solders. However,
since they have not had as many years of development, they do not
flow as well as the older silver solders, which have been without
cadmium for over 20 years, now. So, some people, such as Grace,
prefer to use traditional silver solders. I have written several
articles about using AS, discussing soldering issues. Two are on my
site, and one is at www.riogrande.com.
