What do I Need for Basic Soldering?

Postby Ludmilla » Sat Aug 26, 2017 11:52 am

Hello I wonder if anyone can help me. I have a project that requires soldering. I have a soldering iron and did some many years ago when I was doing a stained glass course so I know how to use it, but I have forgotten the rest .

This time I want to make a T-light holder (steampunk style) so I thought I would solder a screw eye to a nut which is then soldered to a tin can.
What will I need? solder + flux or do I need other things and do I get flux paste or do I need special stuff because it is a tin can. Can anyone help me.

Much appreciated.
