Solder hardness, was Pencil torch as temporary torch?


#1
     You should be looking for hard silver solders, in a variety
of melting points (hard, medium, easy, extra-easy), which do not
contain lead. 
    OK. Please excuse my semantics. To us out here  When we talk
about hard, medium, soft etc solders, we are talking about the
*melting point*. 

Which brings up a question I’ve had for a while-- I was taught that
easy, medium, hard solders melted at different temperatures. Are
they all the same hardness after they are cooled and solidified
again? Does it matter which one is used for simple finding soldering
jobs?
