Great Publication!!!
I have been reading through this publication a few times now and each time I see something new. It is comprehensive for beginners and full of useful information and projects. I have soldered before but it is still daunting starting a new project let alone working out how you can do it. So well done, everyone buy!!!! Review by Margaret (Posted on 6/18/2016)
Excellent source of information!
I haven't yet had the time to read through the entire book, but have glanced through most of it. I find that the information provided is fantastic for a jewelry maker like myself who has not yet ventured into soldering. It is something I have been attracted to for a long time, but have never had the courage to attempt. The book provides detailed information on tools and methods, and I am anxious to read it through to the end, get some proper equipment and jump into my first soldering project!! Thank you for this amazing reference! Review by Cecilia (Posted on 1/3/2016)
just the ticket!
My partner and I are gaining so much from this well put together set of great tips!

There are so many small tricks and techniques where one knows the basics but sometimes it's just the expert 'tweek' that makes all the difference! This book provides so many of them.

Utterly encouraging, sensible and recommended


PS Having the digital copy is brilliant - so easy to search and space savvy when it comes to our library
