Where can I purchase stainless pins for soldering. They are shown in
many projects, but I have not been able to locate any.

Thanks, Larry

I just use the steel pins I use when sewing. May or may not be
stainless, but they work. When they get all gunky, which is usually
after each soldering, I toss them and get a fresh batch.

They are called “Bank Pins” - I found out that Staples does not
stock them in the stores but can order them.

Hi Larry,

Stainless Steel T-pins are available at sewing suppliers - like Jo
Ann Fabrics. My clip of choice for soldering, however, is a cotter
pin. They are cheap and they come in every imaginable size and are
available at hardware stores.

Hi,

I got my last batch of stainless steel pins at Jo-Anns. Just read
the label to make sure they are stainless steel.

Cheers, Karen

The Bank Pins I have from AACO are brass and don’t stand up well to
heat. Better bet is dressmaker’s T-pins. I think they are stainless.

You gotta specify stainless.

I have bought pins from Allcraft, and been pleased with them.
