On-Demand Web Seminar
There are many questions and urban myths out there regarding tanks, torches, fluxes, pickle, soldering surfaces and safety precautions. Lexi will try to remove all misconceptions regarding these often controversial and hotly debated topics. Some more traditional jewelry artisans may find her methods unconventional, but they get results and work! By following 5 very basic rules, and memorizing only 6 words, basic soldering can be accomplished. Learn about some unusual and more complex soldering situations, such as setting posts or prongs into a back plate, which will then hold an unusually shaped stone or found object. Discuss soldering onto copper and copper-bearing alloys, which many beginners choose to start with and the difficulties encountered when using copper solders and bezel wires.
