|Easy||705 – 725ºC|
|Medium||720 – 760ºC|
|Hard||745 – 780ºC|
- Make sure both sides fit perfectly (flush) & that the surface area is large enough.
- Remove the burr (that is filings and saw blade damage). Use some sandpaper.
- Keep solder edges absolutely clean fat & grease free.
- Make sure Flux & the Flux Brush are clean. Do not apply dirty flux to soldering area. Clean flux brush regularly.
- Leave a slight gap between solder edges for solder flow.
- Flux solder edges & place solder strategically.
- Use correct amount of solder.
- Set flame correctly & heat evenly. Distribute heat correctly (both sides of piece must reach flowing temperature of solder together).
- Never concentrate flame on the joint only – Solder will only flow properly when heat distribution is correct.
- Do not stretch solder further than it will or can go – it will cause overheating & destruction of the solder composition.
- If solder does not flow or stops flowing – STOP! Clean and start again. Be very careful NOT to leave acid residue in the seam.
- Preplacement: Small pieces of solder are placed at the joint seam prior to heating
- Heat is then applied until the solder flows to the joint
- Feeding: The fluxed joint is heated to temperature and tip of the solder wire is fed into the joint and should melt on contact
