Re: solder paste

Hi Fred,

Thank you so much for responding to my query. I was in such a state. I continued to research the paste and discovered that it just isn't the correct product for joining elements, just as you confirmed.

Originally, I was so apprehensive about using wire solder but after teaching myself to handle my little torch, I feel confident enough to at least try. Furthermore, the frustration that I feel regarding my already completed chain makes me wonder why I tried the low melting solder in the first place.

I am not sure what to do with my chain. I do love it-perhaps a little decoration for my studio?! Thank you as well for the information on the acid. I think I'll be skipping that though.

Well, I think I shall go place another order.
Thanks again for your insight.

Re: solder paste

I have a bad habit of kicking dead horses.........

Could I use the 430 solder paste to join jump rings on charms for a charm bracelet (all elements are sterling)?

Thanks again,
