Can anyone please tell me if the material used by Part can be soldered.
Ok, i admit it, i cannot solder to save my life, but i am trying to solder some 1/72nd scale tracks and have been unable to get the solder to flow on the damn things.
I have been using a 15kw iron and everyday 0.8mm flux cored solder. I heat up the joint to be soldered but when i offer some solder to the joint it repells the solder. By that i mean that the solder "balls up" on the end of the wire.
Is it the Photo etch material or am i doing something wrong?
I suspect i may have to use a higher wattage iron or a lower melting point solder. Can any one p
I do it myself with Part sets. I think the problem might be the coat Part has given their PE parts. Should make them easier to glue, but more difficult to solder.
Take some fine (waterproof) sandpaper to rough the PE up a little, so you can see the brass underneath. It's best/easiest to do that when the parts are still on their frets.
Hope this helps
