    what the silver is really for

        Comments about RadioShack Silver-Bearing Solder (1 Oz.):

        FYI the 2% silver isn't added to increase conductivity or strength(even though it does a tiny little almost insignifigant bit). It's main purpose is to keep the solder from dissolving silver plating commonly found on SMD components. All other supposed reasons are pretty much snake-oil marketing and 'tribal misinformation'.

          Comments about RadioShack Silver-Bearing Solder (1 Oz.):

          This is the solder I use for all my electronic projects.
          Since it is a lead based solder it melts easily and flows to a nice smooth joint.
          It contains a small amount of silver. The silver prevents silver plated contacts from loosing their plating when soldered to. It's not always apparent which electronic parts have silver plated contacts so it's just good practice to always use solder that has some silver in the formulation.
          Lead solder is not hazardous if used properly and it is much easier to get a good joint. Plus it ages well. Tin solder (lead free) can suffer from "tin disease" and degrade over time.

            Comments about RadioShack Silver-Bearing Solder (1 Oz.):

            I design my own boards and also do minor repairs. In the .015" size this solder works beautifully for hand-soldering Surface Mount components. I also use it to tin pads for reflow of surface mount. The small diameter provides great control over the amount of solder deposited to small leads and pads. That said I also love to use it for through hole. Flows tremendously well when using a Kester flux pen but also flows reasonably well with RS flux paste. Really dig this stuff and would recommend to other hobbyists.

                Solder is great...my favorite...hard to believe I could replace my old favorite...Kester solder.
                The other comment about lead and poison...please...reasonable safety precautions should be taken, but this stuff normally isn't eaten by consumers. And besides...long term studies (acelerated aging and such) have shown that many ROHS products are not as durable as products that used lead based solder...Google it and you'll see.

                  I got this solder based on some of the reviews. It works great for small hobby projects. I have used it for two electronic kits thus far. Easy to solder ic retention contacts, resistors, LED's, capacitors, etc. onto PC board.

                    This is a great product. The addition of silver makes the solder conection more conductive. This is especially important in electronic aplications. Like earlier reviewers have stated this product is not lead-free, which is usually a good thing because most lead-free solders are difficult to work with.

                    Comments about RadioShack Silver-Bearing Solder (1 Oz.):

                    EET student. I use this solder on my projects now instead of the 60/40. Particularly because 60/40 doesn't come in as small diameter as this does at my RS. The small diameter is great for SMT.

                    If you use this, make sure you have hot iron. We found that it melts better around 410 deg. F. or so. Once it is down, it is hard to get it to reflow without a high temperature (which is expected with the silver content). It almost has a gummy consistency when it reflows. Those new to soldering should be careful not to overheat their components when using this.

                      Comments about RadioShack Silver-Bearing Solder (1 Oz.):

                      If you work with your hands long enough, you learn the difference between a really great tool, an average one, and the one that gets in your way.

                      This silver solder to me is one of the special tools. I would pay twice as much for it because it makes everything about soldering easier.

                      I did board repair for several years and always used this after I discovered it. It is stronger than regular solder, flows better to make great joints, and even seems to stick to more metals than other solder. It is harder (but not at all brittle) after cooling, which can reinforce a weakened circuit trace. The thin diameter is a reasonable size even for surface mount repair (which I did just a few days ago).

                      My only concern is that the next time I need to get more that it may not be there. I have not seen it anywhere else. I should probably hoard a case or so.

                      It may sound nuts, but I have even given it as a gift to someone I knew could use it. This can actually make your work better and easier at the same time.
