Is silver solder paste the only solder I can use to soldier sterling? I have always used silver solder from Radio Shack for my electrical connections. (This special rosin core solder is ideal for surface mount devices. It has a 62/36/2% tin/lead/silver formula with a .022” diameter. 1.5 oz. spool. ) 2% silver isn't a lot of silver. If I use the Radio Shack product does this destroy the perceived value of my finished sterling silver piece? Guess I should sign up for one of Peter Acquisto's classes at Guild School..Unfortunately for me, all of his classes are filled for 2017.
