Hi all, I'm new to stained glass. Ok, that probably lost 90% of you but sometimes you just have to be new. I've been lurking, and rarely, posting here for the past month or so. I am considering working with lead free solder and am looking for a site that lists solder properties. What I want to know is what percentage of what metals it contains and the melting points. Any suggestions of where I could find something like this?
Anyone here using a lead free suitable for the copper foil method of stained
Since melting points are higher than leaded solder, what iron/type of flux
do you like to use with it?
Will it work nicely with black patina? Look good on it's own?
Yes, I am taking a class and can ask the instructor (a 60/40 person); but,
as with most things, I think there is more than one approach that will work.
