I, David Ward (Alveston) manage the Society’s silver solder bank. I have noted that there is a growing difference between market prices and our (BSMEE) prices for silver solder fluxes, especially high temperature flux. I am therefore going to increase our price from £5 to £6 for 100 grams of h.t. flux from 1st April. So check your stocks now, and fill your boots! (tel 01454 415678)
Tip from Sean of Cup Alloys. “If you have mixed too much flux for a job and have some left over, drip a few drops of washing up liquid in to the flux paste, mix and store in a small airtight container. It will the remain usable for several months.”
Don’t forget to label it appropriately, and store out of reach of children.
