Pros : Slim and sturdy. Combine with the 3/32" brass tubes 5 pack to create box hinges.
Cons : This con is really a pro: These are a little hard to bend. But if you've ever had a box hinge give out on you, it's been because of someone using wimpy wire. Just saying. :-)
Other Thoughts : I wish these came in bulk quantities or longer lengths (to cut down as needed)!

Kaleidoscopes are a fun tool to use to enjoy optical illusions.

In my reading I keep seeing mentions of tinning. What is it, and how do I do it? Tinning is the term used to describe the action of putting a thin coat of solder over something else, for instance copper foil, a brass vase cap, or a soldering iron tip. One reason may be to protect the metal from the air, which is usually in reference to a soldering iron tip. The other purpose may be to color the metal underneath, which we’ll address here. You may have seen it suggested that you tin all exposed copper foil on the surface of a panel before running a solder bead. (You will need to apply flux before tinning and again before running the bead.) Some people feel that this allows them to run the final bead more easily because all of the foil edges are already covered. Other people prefer to
