Great stuff for the DIYer – Just-Works Colophony Soldering Paste Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This is great stuff, I use it a LOT when soldering my electronics projects at home. Just mix it up according to the patent supplied in another review and your on your way to better soldering jobs and better circuit performance.
Cons:
Might not end up being the worlds most powerful flux after mixing but then again that is the reason behind using non activated rosin, less corrosion!
Other:
You should really get something to clean used flux from your boards as well as this will leave a very sticky residue that will attract dust and various filth if left unattended.
I use ethanol + rosin + glycerin to as in the patent and that makes for a nice flux that can be dispensed with "booster flux bottle" from DX. Note that you will probably have to add some silicone sealant to the thread of the bottle to make sure that all flux goes out through the tip and not throgh the tread and onto your hands.
Bottomline:
Good stuff, good price!
Essential to have in you soldering toolbox!
