can someone help me with my soldering dilema?
greetings to you all!!.....had my first crack at soldering today with no success! the solder did not take to the two metals. i got my soldering iron, flux and solder wire from an electronic supply store. my hobby is jewely making (non precious). do i need to have more knowledge of the metals i am using? i was under the impression that i could pretty much solder anything together. the various components i use are not all the same metals. ...any help out there??.....cheers in advance!!
