Can anybody link to a good quality spool of solder for me, please?  It seems hit and miss on the quality on ebay over the pass year.  Although my last spool seemed to do the job, the quality of the solder seems a bit off.

I always get mine from Farnell, up until fairly recently I used this rosin-based one:


Although I've since switched to this one:


(because the flux in that is less harmful)

No problem. If you don't have an account with Farnell I could buy some for you and post it to you (Farnell will only deliver to my address so you'd need to pay me the postage on top of the cost of the solder).

I have recently been using some multicore tin/lead solder but with 2% silver, it has a slightly lower melting point but it's really nice to work with and the joints are nice and clean.

I use some stuff I got for my RC models:

TBS Solder is spec'd accordingly to Chris Dunkel aka RiSCyD, our lead engineer. Easy to solder, plenty of flux to make sure it cures nice and looks professional.

Includes:
- Tin/Lead: 63/37
- Flux: 1.8%
- DIA: 1.0mm
- N.T: 15g

I use a direct heat tip T12 soldering iron too.

Sorry for the delay ;-)  For what I'm doing at the moment, I might try to get thinner stuff but this is really good.

I've started experimenting using Amtech NC-559-V2-TF tacky flux on through-hole stuff.  I started off using it for stubborn oxidized pins but now I seem to be using it all the time now. Makes the soldering look like factory.
