    Paste solder tips from Ganoksin

    SECRET INGREDIENT Those of us who use paste solders sometimes find an old tube has dried out. There should be some way to recondition it, but what to use? Calling tech support at the suppliers didn't work for me. Either they don't know what the ingredient is or won't tell you the secret. None of us likes to waste an expensive material - $16 - 20 a tube, so I've often experimented with ways to rejuvenate it. Mixing in a liquid flux doesn't work. When the liquid starts to boil off, it spatters the solder in all directions. But after several failed experiments I finally found a way that does work. My secret ingredient is petroleum jelly. Mix in just enough to restore the consistency to something that's usable. If you use too much, the lump of solder will flow over a wide area as soon as the torch starts heating it. If your solder is in a syringe, it can be a little difficult to get the plunger out. I find the easiest way is to poke a hole through the solder from the tip to the rubber plunger (a bur shaft was the right size for my tube). The hole allows air to enter between the solder and the plunger, allowing the plunger to be slowly withdrawn. Once the solder is out of tube, you can easily add the vaseline, mix it up, and spoon it back into the syringe. From https://www.facebook.com/BenchTips/posts/636381476405407:0

Silver and gold jewelry is assembled using hard solders and a torch. Hard solders are alloys of silver or gold that melt at lower temperatures than the sterling or gold karat alloys being used to make the piece of jewelry. Rings & Things carries silver solders. Confusion sometimes arises because the lowest-temperature hard solder is sometimes called "soft" silver solder. (We prefer the term "easy flow" for this lowest temperature hard solder.) Hard solder comes in a number of grades. We carry three: "easy," "medium," and "hard."Hard silver solder melts at around 1365°Fmedium at around 1275°Feasy at around 1240°F.Using these various grades, you can build a complex piece of jewelry starting with hard grade solder, then working down through the temperature ranges. This way the solder holding the first elements will not flow or move when the next pieces are added to the assembly using the lower-melting point solders. To use the hard solders we carry, you also need flux and pickling solution, available separately.FYI: the correct spelling is SOLDER, even though in most of the U.S., we pronounce it "sodder."
