  Sterling Silver Solder Filled Wire - 20g Dead Soft - 1 Foot
Sterling Silver Solder Filled Wire 20g Dead Soft


 
.925 sterling silver solder filled wire. Use to create jump rings and chain ends. When making jump rings it is critical that the ends are flush and that they touch with no gaps. This wire will not solder if the ends are not touching. Create tension by closing the jump ring so the ends pass each other, then open again aligning the ends perfectly. Then apply a fire coat and heat, directing a tight, pointy flame at the seam until the piece reaches flow temperature, which will be a dull salmon color. Remove the flame immediately and quench, pickle and polish. Brin it up to temperature quickly. The idea is to get in and out with the flame as quickly as possible. Heating slowly will result in a breakdown of the solder and result in a failure. If you have not worked with solder filled wire, be prepared for a short learning curve. You may lose a few rings as you learn the color indication of the flow temperature. Don't fret over a few melted pieces! You'll soon learn how far you can go before it melts and find the balance.
