Wow! I went and watched that movie. We all work in our own way. I
must say though I was set back by the technique… She used more
flux on that piece than I would if I made ten of them!!! BUT… each
one of us has our methods. Certainly NOT knocking the method… just
amazed at how different that was!!
Dale, Don’t put flux in a syringe unless you grind the point off the
needle first and I suggest not using any kind of a needle in the
process at all. I lost a good friend because he put an antiquing
solution in a syringe. He accidentally knocked it off his bench,
tried to catch it and wound up injecting himself in the leg. About
20 surgeries later, he had no leg, no groin area, and everything was
gone up to about his ribcage on one side. Finally, he lost the
battle. Just Don’t Do It!
The lady in the video had a little metal tube stuck into a bottle I
think. As I said at the start… that’s a lot of flux… and it went
everywhere if you noticed. I still prefer to put it on with a
brush… only where the solder is to flow. I might have to pickle
and rinse a few times but it would be easier on my nerves!!! Ha!
Yes, you can dissolve your flake or powder type flux and put it in a
little bottle with a tube on it. I like the Batterns Hard Solder
Flux… already a liquid and I have used it for everything.
Good Luck… NO SYRINGES! NO NO NO!!! Dan.
