Solder & Supplies

Solder & Accessories -
Canfield Solder - The finest quality solder on the stained glass market! Different alloys are used for various soldering tasks. Do not use standard 40/60 plumber's solder if you want strong and smooth solder joints. 40/60 solder is not the same as 60/40 solder. The first number indicates the percentage of tin content - the more tin, the quicker and easier your solder will melt.

All solder is sold on 1 pound spools for easy handling, except Silvergleem which comes in a 1/2 pound spool.

CAUTION: Keep lead solder out of the reach of children.

Soldering stained glass is more art than science.
Some beginners are unhappy with the look of their solder lines. While there are many products available to make your soldering easier, the short answer for obtaining smooth, consistent solder lines is practice, practice, practice.

As you practice you will learn what products work for you. while 60/40 solder (60% tin/40% lead) is the most recommended alloy due to a low melting point, you may find that a different alloy gives you a better result.

The typical soldering iron produces more that enough heat to melt your solder, so you will probably want to use a temperature controller. Some soldering irons are available with built-in controllers . Modern stained glass irons have iron clad tips that eliminate the need to frequently file the soldering tip. Just wipe the hot tip on a block of sal-ammoniac to clean.

A thin coating of Anti-Sieze on the soldering iron tip will keep it from 'freezing' into the shaft when it is time to replace the tip. Use a touch of Anti-Sieze on the locking collar, or screw, as well.

Different size tups are available for fine detailed decorative soldering versus large window panels.

Again, your choice or flux is a personal preference. The fluxes we stock all do a fine job of chemically cleaning copper foil and lead or zinc came before soldering.
