SILVERSMITHING - Examples and Techniques
or lightBasics on Silver Soldering
Step 1: • Use the least amount of solder needed to make a good joint. Do not flood the joint with solder. (not overly an issue with most joints).
Step 2: • Pieces to be soldered should fit tightly together with no air space or light in between.
Step 3: • Make sure the joint and the solder are clean. Prior to soldering, flux all surfaces well to prevent oxidation, which can inhibit solder flow.
flux helps the solder flow where you want it.
Step 4: • As you heat the pieces to be soldered, work so that all pieces reach soldering temperature at the same time. ( if one piece is thicker than the other, heat the thicker one more,)
