Safe Art Soldering Flux - 8 Oz

Safe Art Soldering Flux - 8 Oz

Item# 96102
safe art flux, January 31, 2013 1 stars
Pros
low smoke,and the solder doesn't bubble up and sputter like with the novocan flux.
Cons
It left orangeish stains on my countertop. Its the consistency of water, so you have to keep reapplying or doing really small sections at a time. Also because of the consistency, it runs down onto the pattern, so my patterns were ruined after one use. I felt like the solder reacted weirdly to it, I had to keep going over it again and again. Between that and having to apply and reapply in small sections, it REALLY slowed me down. It took twice as long ss usual to solder a piece.
Other Thoughts
I did not like this product at all. I bought 2 bottles. I used most of the first one hoping it was just a matter of getting used to something new... it wasn't. I will throw away the second one.

Terrific product, September 16, 2010 5 stars
Pros
Always arrives 6 ft long and straight due to packaging. Easy to cut. Takes patina well.
Cons
On occasion, not quite wide enough to take some of the hand rolled glass. Need to run pliers along channel to widen.
