Beginners Qs on electronic soldering
That reference is to a lengthy News thread.
Much depends on the type of work being done; I would add :-
- For electronics, use thin flux-cored solder,
- For electrics, one can use thicker flux-cored solder,
- For mechanical, it depends on the material : for stainless steel or chrome plate, I would use a more aggressive flux, as in Arax, and wash the work well after.
