Lol ! I like the desert excuse :-)

However, I do know the glass dish you mean, and there are some in the cupboard !

Order is placed, just need to wait to receive the flux and solder and I’ll give it a try ! I did try and order a fibreglass brush/pen as well but there’s none in stock, and I can’t find anyone else that has them either ! Never mind, I’ll have to find something else to “rough up” those tags a bit. 

As I said earlier, it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks !


Cheers !

RS are good suppliers of electrical and electronic tools:

But if you want dirt cheap just put "Fibre Glass Pen" into eBay and you get over a couple of hundred of them

Well Gents,

Thanks to your discussions and recommendations, I’ve got flux, solder and fibreglass pens on their way. I’m looking forward to great things - and of course, beautifully soldered track bus wires :-)

kind regards,

Bryan.

You'll not regret trying the Sapphire flux... it will transform the soldering for you
