posted by aceofspades on 06/14/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
-Its a 2 pack
-Makes high quality flux
-It pretty easy to make
-It is a generous amount for under 2 bucks.
Cons:
-Packaged as violin resin
Other:
How to make it:
-Leave it in the box
-put it in a vice and crush it than put it in the other way. That should get it nice and powdery.
-Open the box carefully and put the contents into a small plastic bag.
-Cut a corner off
-Pour it into your flux bag
-Than add some common sopropyl alcohol (higher the better) at a proportion of 60%
-Add a tad bit of glycerin if you can find
-Let it sit for a couple days.
-SOLDER!!! :P
oh and for refrence page 2 of US patent 3,730,782
Bottomline:
If you need flux use this. All the other pre made flux suck and are expansive.
