WeekendMiniaturist Posted December 14, 2016 Share Posted December 14, 2016 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. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
