Carrs high quality 138 degree low-melt solder by C+L Finescale. 30 grams of 1.2mm wire spooled on a handy card, labelled for easy identification. 58% bismuth and 42% Tin.

The bismuth in this solder lowers the melting temperature to a point where it can be used for joining whitemetal to whitemetal or brass/nickel silver etc. It is a relatively sticky solder and will build up quite thick. This can sometimes be a nuisance when seen on the outside of a model, but is also very handy when trying to fill a gap or hole, particularly shrinkage in whitemetal castings. 138 solder is the highest temp solder you would use on whitemetal, assembling the largest parts with this before adding the final, smallest bits with 100 degree solder (see my other auctions).

Note: NOT flux cored! You will need to use a liquid flux such as a weak phosphoric acid solution. Also note that as it contains lead, it must be used with adequate ventilation.
