Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Solder

I've been preparing to teach Beginning Stained Glass online for the great folks at and I figured it might be nice to explain the "why" behind some of the things I choose to do.

One of the things I use most is 60/40 (tin-lead) solder. I didn't think "because I like it" would be a reasonable response if asked so I did what any reasonable person would do and asked Google.

I found this wonderful blog with more information about solder than you ever thought you needed to know. It's a wealth of knowledge including discussions on solder purity and flux choices.

Thanks Chatter Glass for the great blog post: Which Solder Should I Use?
