This item: Mastercraft Leadfree Solder - 1 lb. by MasterCraft
Lead-free solder is a wonderful solution for stained glass items that will be handled often. It's particularly good for kaleidoscopes, three dimensional projects and jewelry. Lead-free solder has a higher melting temperature, which may require a higher temperature tip or rheostat, depending on your iron. A separate soldering iron tip is recommended to keep your project lead free. Sold in 1 pound spools.
Improved formula allows for easier flow when soldering. Also provides a better shine when polished.
Delphi Tip: Lead-Free Solder should be used when making projects where your skin comes in contact with it, such as jewelry, boxes and kaleidoscopes.

Cons : Not as shiny as I would have liked, works better with high temps but easy to over work
Other Thoughts : I used a torch with soldering attachment and an electrical plug in soldering iron. The torch worked so much better but it was very easy to overheat the solder. The plug in iron didn't heat it up enough. The iron would get stuck then would have to heat up again to get unstuck. Looking into another soldering iron, and more solder. I am a beginner so just trying everything out.
Pros : One part of working in a lead reduced studio.
Other Thoughts : I only use it when I need to. I sometimes overlay it with 60/40 to get a better looking finish when I can. It is ok if you are using a dark patina. I have tried a variety of irons and temps. I found a cool temp works the best and gives the best finish. It does not flow well nor leaves a shiny finish. I still use 73 solder for most of my work with masks and ventilation.

National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream
