I just soldered gallery wire bezels to a bunch of back plates, using
very thin iron binding wire.
In several places tiny bits of the binding wire managed to become
soldered to the gallery wire.
I think some of the spots are where the wire flaked as began to
disintegrate, but the wires were actually stuck in a couple places. I
thought I got it all off before pickling the bezels. But of course I
didn’t, with predictable pink results.
How do I get the nearly invisible bits of binding wire off/out of the
And how do I prevent this from happening again? I always thought you
couldn’t solder iron wire to anything…
