Safe Art Soldering Flux - 4 Oz

Safe Art Soldering Flux - 4 Oz

Item# 96101
Safe but hard to use, January 7, 2013 1 stars
Pros
I bought this flux because I wanted something that was non-toxic but worked the same as other flux do. I found it to slow down my soldering to a stand-still. Even on full heat the 60/40 solder barely stuck to the copper foil. I took 3x as long to solder a project. I would suggest this for starter projects only. It left a residue on the finished solder lines that continued to seem to erode.
Cons

Mine did not work., September 15, 2010 2 stars
Pros
Good size.
Cons
I must have got a faulty mold because my glass fused to the mold even with release painted on it. I fired it up to 1500 as usual and it fused the glass to the mold. I had to throw it in the trash.

Great, September 15, 2010 4 stars
Pros
I've used this for years and it is by far the best patina.
Cons
The smell is bad and it stains but I've known this. I don't think you can avoid that with a patina.
