How do you Solder?
mel e asked:

I have a 400w wall triger-heat gun. I have tried to tin the tip with flux many times. I have filed, sanded, brushed, in many attempts to condition the tip but solder still won’t flow to the tip, it just rolls off. Do I have to chemically condition it somehow? I use this gun daily to tin the ends of cords for stab installation in switches for tools.

How do you Solder?
John Relling asked:

I have two ends of a metal coathanger and I’m trying to solder them together.

I have soldering wire and a gun, but whenever I melt the solder wire down and try to get it to stick to the hanger….IT DOESN’T!

This is getting so frustrating, and I’m running out of solder spring.

Any thoughts?

Thank you,

flugy98765 asked:

I’m wanting to get into making miniature junkyard sculptures which will require me to weld or solder things like bike chains, screws and so on. Should I be able to do everything with a solder gun or will i need a welder also?

Also, if someone could point me to a decent solder gun for cheap, about $30 or so I’d appreciate it.

Cut between the finger! asked:

I am currently changing the central heating radiators around the house but not sure which kind of solder to use on the pipes - leaded or unleaded? What are the pros and cons of each type?

I have a soldering iron, and solder-I have been trying to attach some of the softer tubes to the larger one, but the solder snaps right off… with little effort..or slides right off before it cools-im having trouble getting it to stick to the copper? Any suggestions?? thank you!
