Soldering stainless steel - how ???
I do stained glass and have alittle knowledge about solder & soldering irons . The one thing I haven't been able to solder is stainless steel . I know it can be done . I'm trying to incorporate stainless steel (such as silverware ) with my leaded panels. St.S. needs so much heat - it melts the lead . I've tried acid core solder , 95% tin - no luck . I've tried filing the area to be soldered and wire brushing it - no luck . The tip of my iron gets up to 600Â° to 700Â°... torches discolor & melt everything . I have a website bookmarked that shows stained glass wrapped with lead soldered onto stainless steel . I'm at a loss as how to do it. Is there a simple way ?
THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH !!!
