Default RE: Soldering Linkages

ORIGINAL: 2slow2matter

I've used resin core solder without any problems. At first I tried silver solder, but I couldnt' get the thing hot enough without ruining the clevise, so We switched to resing core--no problems. Plenty strong. Just remember to use lots of flux!
Yup. With a 100-watt gun, its a quick and easy job. Mine died, and I got one of those hobby torches. It works just as well, and is actually better for doing wrap jobs like cabanes, etc.

Silver solder is nice, but I've yet to have a clevis come loose using the resin core solder. Like 2slow said use plenty of flux and get the joint HOT before applying the solder. Doan want no steenkin' cold joint...
