Soldering Alloy To
Parts Of Fishing Lures
An electric soldering iron will be required for some soldering jobs. These tools for soldering come in various sizes, but the 90- or 100-watt iron is a good general purpose type (see illustration below).
With this, of course, you'll need soft solders which are alloys of lead and tin. They can be obtained in wire, ribbon, or bar form. The wire solder is the most convenient since it has a hollow core like a tube which contains a flux.
If you use bar solder you'll have to buy a flux such as rosin or soldering paste. This is used to remove the oxide coating from metals so that the solder will take.
