Not sure what happened to the intro I submitted upon request when
subscribing but I presume it is out there somewhere.
Anyway, I have been soldering electronic stuff since about 10 years
old but I am just getting into this sort of soldering. My torch is on
the way and I will begin the learning experience tomorrow.
Question I have at the moment is:
I have a star ruby ready to solder on to a ring shank, probably soft
solder as I am told it is called and wonder if anyone can tell me if
star saphire has any heat sensitive problems.
I can take it out of the setting but I would rather not. It does
not fit very well and I had to cut the gem to make it fit and not
sure I can get it back in again.
