Hi Pat,You wrote that the pictures make it look good but on pictures you see every little mistake and bad spots so its your work that is good to the mm. How do you solder brass? High heat?
We all doing mistakes and they show on our work earlier or later...they are (mistakes) can be minimized but not unavoidable (IMHO). I using magnifying glasses for most of my work because I simply, cannot see well without them on. While using magnifying glasses you can see all of the details LARGE enough to correct if you see something wrong.pictures you see every little mistake and bad spots
@Pat71 It all depends on the time and\or mood I have. usually a few hours during the weekdays and more time on the weekend. Also, it greatly depends on what part of the project you are working ON. Rigging - is not my best part, though.How long do you spend in the shipyard a day?
Yes, it is super easy! As long as you soldering parts are tight together, it just a matter to close the sim. But obviously, it depends on if the part needs to hold tension or it visible to your eyes (without magnifying glasses).Jim, Is it easy to judge the amount of paste to use? I like the idea of silver instead of tin and lead!
You will look for silver soldering paste (easy, or low temperature) something like this: https://www.riogrande.com/product/KB430LowTemperatureSilverPasteSolder/503014?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIkrrTgriq3wIViovICh1MdQ5ZEAkYEiABEgIVb_D_BwETnx gonna look for that paste
