i have a project im working on. It requires some small vises to hold 1mmx1mmx3mm square wire in rows of 6 wires across (on the 1mm end) and idk how may rows yet.
Anyway, Im looking at holding them together using vise jaws like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-x-1-75-x-75-Machinable-Steel-Vise-Soft-Jaws-For-Kurt-4-Vises-FREE-SHIP/352358084197?hash=item520a2dae65:g:6KwAAOSwsnNcZyUo
what I’m wondering is if these jaws will hold up while I solder the wires together (mainly gold alloys and some pt and palladium).
any advice on which type of metal I should go for? At first I thought maybe brass or aluminum but am worried id melt them. What do you all think, will steel work best? Do I need a specific type of steel?
