The best deal here for me ! – Just-Works Colophony Soldering Paste Reviews

Pros:
This is just awesome. You can create a very efficient, very cheap solder flux with this item. Simply add some IPA (isopropylic alcohol) and some drops of glycerin, wait 24 or 48 hours and voilà.
Cons:
You need time for the rosin to melt in the IPA, if you need sodler flux RIGHT NOW ... it "could" be a con. Finding IPA could be a bit hard depending on your location.
Other:
I really like liquid solder flux, it's very efficient, and make each soldering session very confortable. I also use it to smooth the "mecanic soldering paste" found here and make it more sticky.
Bottomline:
I bought 5 in bulkrate it's even cheaper. Now I make flux for all my friends and they are very happy with it.
