Re: 2% Silver
"Silver Solder" is a hard solder used in making mechanical joints such as in jewellery. It melts at a relatively high temperature and is akin to brazing, i.e. "hard soldering". It contains silver, copper and zinc and maybe a little cadmium to get a lower melting-point. The "silver bearing" solder is akin to soft solder (used in making electrical joints) and contains a relatively low proportion of silver.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Hello Chuck. I thought they used "silver" solder on those? Is that not
lead free? If not, what does "Silver" solder mean?
Sorry, just curious.
