I used some samples of Superior SuperSafe 30 flux which I got about
30 years ago and confirmed that they still do produce this product.
My reason for mentioning the product is: this flux is very good for
making fine solder joints that need a minimum amount of
solder...Example being for those of you making your own hand-laid
track. This flux burns off with the heat applied to solder and I have
made joints with this and never got any discoloration evident even
after many years. I am going to renew my contacts with this company
to find out the current price and minimum order with the possibility
of breaking down an otherwise unrealistic amount for the average user
and try offering bottles with 1 or 2 OZ for sale.
Anyone interested keep watching for my results.
