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.
