    from Tucson, Az

    just from what i've read at my short time here i kinda get teh feeling that not many people are versed in the ways of the lead. well to make it a little easier to get goin i am going to throw out some "recipies" for tinning butters, soldering salts and some "no rust" so here it goes. granted it would probably be easier to find someone that sells the stuff, but its always nice knowing you can make it if you have to. I've usually get the chemicals of the internet.

    tinning butter #1

    mix ingredients into pot over low heat

    all amounts by weight

    500 parts oilve oil
    400 parts mutton tallow

    slowly stir in

    250 parts powdered rosin

    boil up once and allow to begin to cool

    mix in 125 parts water that is saturated with sal ammoniac(add while stirring untill the sal ammoniac wont dissolve any more)

    allow to cool before use

    tinning butter #2

    50 parts oilve oil
    50 parts powdered sal ammoniac(usually comes in a block, powder yourself)

    mix till warm, cool to use

    no rust

    mix by weight

    equal parts

    zinc chloride
    sal amoniac saturated in water
    distilled water

    filter before use

    soldering salts

    equal parts

    neutral zinc chloride(free of iron)
    powdered sal ammoniac
    mix with minimat water untill pasty

    mix 50:50 with water to use

    hope this is of some help to someone

    cool info. i bet there's a lot of folks here who would like to try this, but plastic just sounds so much easier (comparitively so, anyway).

    fear of the unknown?
