Hello Hande, I'll try to answer your queries tomorrow - in the meantime have a look at reply no. 321 on page 13. ;D

Hello Paul, the solder paint is a mixture of micro particles of solder and flux, just give it a stir, brush it on (very little required) and apply your heat source. Very little cleaning up afterwards.
The usual cleanliness in respect of preparing to solder of course...

Solder paste, as I found out when I ordered a tin online, is just another name for solder flux.

Hope this clarifies.

Regards,

Ray.

Thank you Ray, that's perfect I'll buy some of the Bakers no3 fluid as I'm told this is paint? got to be better than trying to solder all the joints separately  :-))

As always, when trying something new, test it on some scrap first. :-))

....also, there's a photo in reply no. 285 on page 12, showing what I used - expensive but nice to use.

Regards,

Ray.

Thanks Ray I've just looked, I saw that picture before but looked part the pot, thanks it looks like it'll be worth the investment and last quite a while anyway sometimes it's worth paying more for something, Also in that same picture I've seen that stern light you made and it's reminded me to make a new one

THERE it is - I couldn't find it. (It is remarkably difficult to find specific information from the threads  :((   So, 25lb. Your battery looks very similar in size compared with mine. I guess, I'm going to come close.
Thanks, Ray!
