Thoroughly removes greasy mess and residues from all types of flux and solder
Prevents oxidation crust from improper cleaning
Allows copper patina to produce a bright shiny finish
Remove oily flux after soldering and you'll prevent discoloring and oxidation that may occur with time. Just squeeze on flux remover, wipe with a damp sponge, rinse, and dry thoroughly. Flux remover is absolutely safe to use: non-toxic, non-abrasive, non-flammable and water soluble. You'll find your patinas turn out more uniform when you use CJ's.
Shake before using. Apply CJ's directly to finished piece immediately after soldering. Scrub entire piece (glass, lead, solder joints) with soft brush and warm water, then rinse clean. If using a patina, apply now and rinse again.

The replacement tips for the Weller 100 will fit the Studio Pro 100 iron. Should I use a rheostat with my Weller 100 soldering iron? No. Using a rheostat with a Weller 100 could ruin your iron. The Weller 100 has a built in thermostat, so if you want to change the temperature, you have to change the tip. 700 degrees is the standard for 60/40 solder, but 600 and 800 degree tips are available. My soldering iron tip keeps turning black. Am I doing something wrong? Probably not. It is possible that your iron is running a little hot, so you could trying turning your rheostat down a little. Most tips will eventually turn black, just use a tinning block to help clean them. Decorative
Last year, we asked our Facebook fans to tell us how they use regular household items as tools in glass art creation. We got a fantastic list of ideas. When we asked again this year, we got a few more great tips to share. Heres the list, Part II. Thanks everyone. • Folgers coffee "buckets" for scrap glass • A cut-up cardboard box instead of a grinder shield • The plastic tops of milk containers for holding flux while working • Spoons for frit to roll beads in; baby spoons to hold small amounts of frit • Silverware basket from dishwasher to hold tools • Canning jars to hold frit • Wooden toothpicks for mandrels • Stainless steel bowls and containers for slumping • Page protectors to keep patterns dry while grinding • Cut an apron out of old plastic tablecloth to use while grinding.
