I used the soldering iron that Steve and Les have set up at the corner of the work benches near the door, that thing was awesome! Was that the Hakko soldering iron?

By the way, I ordered an Xray T1 Evo2 and it should be arriving today . Hopefully when I go up there later to pick it up Steve will also have the Hakko soldering station in stock.

I'm sure that someone will correct me if I'm wrong (I'm reasonable sure that I am not). Silver solder (usually) uses acid flux and is not good for electrical connections of any kind.

We are moving toward lead free solders. In the future there will not be any tin/lead solder.

Common Alloys Being Used or
Evaluated to Replace Lead
& Their Melting Points

Sn96.5Ag3.5 (221 C) tin(Sn)/silver(Ag) solder
Sn95Sb5 (232-240 C)
Sn95.5Ag3.8Ci0.7 (~217 C)
Sn95.8Ag3.5Cu0.7 (~217 C) NIST Alloy
Sn99.3Cu0.7 (227 C)
Sn96.2Ag2.5Cu0.8Sb0.5 (213-218 C)
Sn97Cu2.0Sb0.8Ag0.2 (226-228 C)
Sn91.8Ag3.4Bi4.8 (202-215 C)
Sn42Bi58 (138 C)

The silver solders come with different fluxes. Depends on the application. The silver solder that is used for jewelry uses the acid flux.

First off, You need a hot iron. Check it out. www.bormir.com. Look under goot irons, TQ series. I have a TQ 95. Best 25.00 I ever spent on RC. Only problem, Bormir is having a hard time keeping them in stock, because the word is out them. As for your question about solder. Acer racing solder as the highest silver content adversized. I had a hard time soldering with this solder with a 42 watt iron. And I had a good one (Weller WTCPT) even with a ungar race station (60 watt iron)I once had. I would buy some rosin core flux to use with Acer solder. Dean's is a good solder. Or last use 63/37 solder you can buy a electronic store. 63/37 can be used with irons that don't get as hot.
