  • Hard to get good solder, this seems good enough

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week


    Turned my soldering iron down to 650 and compared this solder (labeled by a sticker saying 2004643) to my trusty, 20yo 1lb reel of Kester "44" Rosin Core,63/37 0.031 diameter. Not a lot of difference. The Kester gave a shinier joint, but not much difference

    Same melting point as the 63/37 Kester

    Can't see any signs of rosin problems further into the reel (as reported by others) and certainly the amount of rosin in the outer layer seems good enough for me.


    Flange of reel was damaged by shipping in a standard bubble envelope


    Going to buy some more, while I can :)


    Hard to get solder which really works these days. When I was looking around the Shenzhen Electronics Mart last month I noticed a few booths selling just solder, but it never occurred to me that ROHS might cause a shortage of good hand-solder, so I didn't look at their wares. As it turned out, by the time I got home I had realized I needed to buy some from DealExtreme ASAP :)
