  • Considered safer for anything involving direct skin contact - jewelry, kaleidescopes - or any project that might be in contact with food
  • For copper foil tape seams
  • Melting temperature is 445°F; flows much like 50/50 solder
  • Requires a hotter-than-usual soldering iron; either turn your heat up (Hakko) or use a hotter tip (Weller100)
  • Practice to get a feel for how the lead free solder flows
  • Use finishing wax to prevent tarnish
