Has anyone used tool station's lead free (plumbing) solder? I
previously used the Fernox brand from screwfix but I see there is a
price difference of a few pounds. I don't mind paying more for the
fernox if it is better; is it?
My plumbing technique seems to have got better since I bought a new
blow torch. The one I had previously, a £10 cheapie from Wilkos have a
very broad flame and I don't think that helped.
I find 15mm fittings easier to do than 22mm ones. I seem to apply the
solder to the 22mm fittings before it is hot enough to flow properly.
I guess that's because it is a bigger fitting and takes longer to warm
up. Any tricks of the trade to know when it is ready for the solder?
I am still using the yellow pot of Fry's flux, so don't need any more
yet, but I see la-co also make some which is cheaper. Is that just as
