Problems soldering posts to Artentium Sterling

Hi All,

I have been having a problem when I set an earring post onto an
Argentium backplate. I place the post with solder balled onto the end
in a third hard, loosely set so that when the solder flows the post
will lightly drop onto the backplate. I am using easy solder and just
enough heat to get the solder to flow but when it does the argenitum
backplate always slumps. Is anyone else having this problem?

Hi Grace,

Flat sheets of Argentium Sterling need to be supported. If the back
plate is laying on a soldering board, it cannot slump.
