DVD: Soldering Made Simple
You may enjoy this video as a companion to Joe's 112-page book, Soldering Made Simple: Easy techniques for the kitchen-table jeweler.
The key tool that makes Joes methods safe and easy to do at home is an inexpensive, handheld butane torch. On this 92-minute DVD, see and hear Joe explain everything you'll need to know to get started soldering tools, materials, safety, and setup. Then watch as Joe demonstrates his techniques by creating a soldered pendant and necklace. A longtime teacher, Joe has a friendly presentation style that will get you started soldering with confidence.
A bonus PDF included on the DVD recaps tools, materials, and step-by-step instructions for making the project.
