Other silver solders


#1

What is the composition of IT solder? Is “IT” the same as “plumb
silver solder”? (Plumb makes it sound as though lead is a
component.)

When a piece requires sequential joins, the convention seems to be:
use hard solder for the first join, medium for the second, easy for
the third, and extra-easy for repairs. Now that there is a new
solder in town, does everything get bumped down a notch? I.e.,
should it be IT for the first join, hard for the second, etc.?

reason I can’t get the search function to pinpoint just the relevant
