A while back I wrote about my ideas of stainless steel soldering
clamps, well I was contacted by Lee Marshall of Knew Concepts and he
asked me if I had tried making my soldering clamps from titanium. I
said no so Lee kindly sent me some titanium strips to try.
Well if anyone wants the ultimate soldering clamps that are even
better than my stainless ones, these are them. They keep their
spring longer, will take more heat and can be cut with fine points
that do not degrade when heated many times. I sent Lee my ideas and
soon Knew Concepts will be offering for sale, packs of ready cut
titanium strips, so that they can be bent into any required shape
clamping items together when soldering.
The photos show a T shaped clamp and a positioning clamp, how I
shaped them and examples of their uses to hold items in place when
soldering, it’s especially good for possitioning ear.
