Superglue and Soldering


#1

My variant is to use the gel sort of superglue to hold pieces in
place - this doesn’t run all over the place. When it’s dry carefully
wire the pieces, then place in acetone overnight.

The superglue dissolves and the wiring should hold everything where
it should be…then solder !

Thanks for the responses so far regarding using superglue in the
sokering process. One question: how do you get the solder in the
right place. Do you glue it into the solder joint?

After gluing the pieces together, I pack Heat Sheild compound around
the outside of the pieces (Just enough to hold everything together).
Then i flux it up. I use a mini torch, heat up the solder joint.
When

the flux runs glassy, i put my fluxed chips of solder where i want
them to be, and the solder flows into the gap where the crazy glue
was. I hope this helps!
