Hi Paul,

It's not the sort of flux that I'd be using for any electronic work due to its corrosive nature but something I wouldn't hesitate to use for heavier work with a good clean up afterwards. I've used Bakers for things like resoldering tarnished battery connectors, soft copper pipe, (with magnetic loop experiments etc.), and a number of heavier duty soldering jobs. It's great stuff if you use heavier soldering irons or small blow torches for soldering tin, brass or copper plate together for RF enclosures, cases etc. which is where I usually use Fry's too.

For electronics work I usually pick up a reel of typical 60/40 tin/lead, rosin core flux type of stuff. I recently got some 'Silverline' in a 250g reel for a bargain price which has turned out to be just as good as any fancy name/expensive brands. Should last me a few years too! 

I do have some of the unleaded stuff you find everywhere nowadays which usually needs a hotter iron temperature and not too good on even the slightest amount of tarnish. Still cant beat the old 60/40. Wink


I hope you and yours have a great Easter too.


All the best,
Victor
