    O.K. :geek: I bought 60% tin / 40%lead rosin core solder,melting point of 361 – 375, cleaned the surfaces, used a little dab soldering paste anyway and a solder iron, was able to accomplish the task, had smaller areas of solder but seemed to hold good, I also tested this on 2 flat pieces of brass to see if I could get a good lap joint, It takes awhile to get the heat thru but it did work. But Bob you said you had 60/40 zinc???? maybe I should look for that…. I think this would work good for the hinges ect…???.can you guys tell me why my head hurts 😯 William (Pauls friend)
