63/37 solidifies very quickly. It goes from a liquid to solid in less than a degree F. 60/40 solidifies slowly over a few degrees change in temp. If you have clamps and clips to hold everthing together while soldering, the 63/37 works great. It is used in most manufacuring where lead solder is used for this reason. It speeds up production. If you are holding wires and connectors together with your hands and hand held tools like forceps the 60/40 works best.

When you're talking about radio shack 60/40, we talking about this?

.032"

I solder like 4mm or 5mm bullets on helis 500 and up. I have some skinny solder (sorry, diam not avail atm) and I find myself flowing a lot of inches into bullets, 14awg tinning, etc.

Anybody have favorite diameters?

thx
oops, bounced it!

You can still get the old Lead solder on Ebay and etc. Kester Lead solder is still avail at decent prices.

To make a LONG story short it is 1,000 times easier to work with. FYI when you see the fumes that is the flux fumes not the lead or tin. They will not vaporize at the temps we solder at.

If your taught by BOEING on how to solder particularly "high reliability" soldering then yes you use 63/37. I use it at home with no problems but I guess am use to it.Charles

60 tin /40 led it must be it is.

Hard to hold a hot battery wire steady with the bare fingers until the molten puddle cools and sets, but between alligator clips, nothing should move around and the weld will be steely solid.

Thanks, were done with this. I by now have a little of everything known to man, green, not green, 60 this, 37 that, skull and crossbones variety (tried that and it really works) LOL.

One battery ran on the heli without a hitch deans with 60/40 solder, then a NEW battery soldered with acid core killed it, HA HA.

Been some nice calm air the last few days.
