Hi All
J I love your piece yes

Seems the topic went to soldering. I have a crazy way of soldering you all might think about. OK the flux is the crazy thing that makes things move around. Flu is the cleaner that is to move dirt oxidation ect out of the solder joints to make a good solder joint.

I don't use flux any more. The solder and parts I soak in connoisseurs brand silver cleaner for about 15 min then rinse with water and let dry. After dry I soak them in 91% Isopropyl alcohol and sterilize my shears and tweasers. Put together while wet and let dry then solder. Let cool then put back in the silver cleaner. You all wont believe the lack of clean up.I use oxy and propane so I cant say this would work for everyone. Try it on some scrap and see what you all think. hide

Again I love your piece and just trying to help.
