Low melt solder

#1

Post by DavidEnghauser »

I have two kits that require low melt solder. One is etched brass and the other is white metal. The only low melt solder I can find here in the US is 347F/175C from Amazon.

I note that DCC Concepts has two low melt, one is 145 and the other is 100.

What is best to use? Can I use the same for each type of metal?

Do I need the low melt from DCC Concepts or will the 175 work?

Thanks,

David

145c will be fine for brass, but 70c for white metal. I use Carrs here in U.K.
