Re: Correct Silver solder
I think 2% is okay, with lead preferred since that's what they used.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In my case, I found a piece of silver solder my dad had for his jewelry repairs and using some of it alternately with tin-lead seems to do the job for the terminal strips. So apparently the fraction isn't critical.

I am beginning restoration on a 555 I got a few months ago. What is the
correct alloy of solder for the ceramic tie strips? I have found both
tin/lead/silver and lead-free, both with 2% silver content . Are these
satisfactory? Is 2% silver enough, or is a richer alloy needed? Thanks,
