OK, here goes with the “stupid question” for Bill D. (or anyone) -
Please give an explanation of how TIX solder and flux is used, and
on what materials it works best.
I’ve never used TIX. Apparently TIX flows with low heat, but does
that mean to use a soldering iron, a simple flame, or what. I do
some repairs/re-makes on costume jewelry, and would like to be able
to use a better quality solder than the coil that comes with the
soldering iron. After the joint is soldered, is there any special
action to be taken, like filing or polishing?
If the the coat of arms and lid is metal get you a tube > of TIX
solder and the flux that goes with it. Tix solder is a low > heat
solder but it will hold 4000 lbs. l do a lot of puting > findings
on Silver, Gold, Copper , Brass , and Nickle Silver. But > it will
not stick to AL . Tube of 20 stick will cost about $12. + > flux.
