Default RE: Soldering Linkages

Plain old electrical solder and flux is adequate. The StayBrite silver solder works well but is unecessary as the other will do the job. The main thing is to make sure the rod is perfectly clean before starting to solder. I personally think a 40 watt iron is way to small for 4-40 rods but, if you can do it, fine. I'd suggest a 60 to 100 watt gun. If you do the silver solder, you definately need the 100 watt gun.
