1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Soldered Scooter Pendants with Charms on: March 04, 2010 04:49:47 AM
I made a few of these for my etsy store. Thinking of more ideas to market to some scooter vendors in hopes that they buy them wholesale. Thanks for looking!

Anybody out there know of a FABULOUS recipe for a lactose free new england style chowder? I'm new to cooking with lactose free items and am hoping to find some tried and true recipes. Thanks for your help!

Another soldering question that I cannot seem to locate in the boards: Smiley

Anybody have somebody that they are absolutely IN LOVE with that sells soldering supplies at a great price and has fast shipping. Being in the seattle metro area, I'm pretty fortunate to have lots of craft stores, but there only seems to be one major brand that is found. I see lots on Etsy, but am hesitant to buy supplies until I know that they are good quality and that people have tried them with great results. I have reseller permit, so I can buy wholesale too. (I hope I'm not breaking any craftster rules by asking for referrals here. Please let me know if I am. I'm a n00b and I know it! haha!)

(Edit: by the way, I'm making soldered jewelry with a solder made of tin/copper/silver and I use an iron. Looking for people's favorite supplies!)

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Soldered Jewelry: avoiding marks that appear when solder is cooling on: March 04, 2010 03:23:23 AM
Hi there! Wink
I'm pretty new to soldering, only have been doing it for about a year now. i am wondering if there are any other peeps out there who solder and could tell me how to avoid the ghost marks that seem to appear each time I solder. I then have to file and sand them away, but it makes for a very tedious process and takes away the organic feel of the piece.

If there is a way to keep the ghost marks from happening, this would save me a lot of finish work.

BTW, I'm soldering with an iron, using a brand name solder which is made of tin, copper and what I'd guess is about 4-5% silver.
Thanks for your help!
