Does what you expect – Just-Works Colophony Soldering Paste Reviews

Pros:
Dissolve it in Isopropyl or Ethanol, heat it, let it cool and the alcohol evaporate a bit. You get viscous colophony flux that won't flow away until you solder. With more alcohol, you get a liquid for brushing onto a PCB or sticking wires in.
Cons:
It's a bit hard to dissolve a block, you have to break up the large block into smaller pieces.
The block is poured into the cardboard box, sometimes you have to peel the cardboard from the Colophony.
Other:
Even if the boxes seem small, they last very long.
Bottomline:
Buy it, much cheaper than "professional" electronics Colophony.
