studio tips


1. Take a permanent marker (a different color for each level of solder, red for soft, black for hard, etc.) and cover one side of the selected solder sheet in that color.

2. Create "snippits" by using sheers, slicing vertical lines, and then following with horizontal lines snipping into a container labeled for the level of hardness.

After the sheet is cut into snippits the marker coloring will allow you to distinguish the level of hardness even if the snippits are spilled or mixed, or end up on the bench, floor, or elsewhere. The color burns off during soldering.
