Q&A with angeleyes777
Did you have any trouble soldering the patterned wire? I brought some and am finding hard to get the solder to flow
If you're heating and heating and heating, and the solder won't flow, it sounds like your torch isn't burning hot enough. I did have to use a bigger torch (bigger than my regular micro-torch) on these, as it's a lot of silver to heat. And, of course, the solder won't flow if the silver can't get hot enough. I learned that after wasting a lot of my time trying to make it work with my regular torch. It took forever, but did finally work. With the bigger torch, it only takes a few seconds to make the solder flow.
