I love soldering with a torch. It's useful for all kinds of applications, and it's a great way to join metal that's too big for a soldering iron, but too small for a proper torch.

This is a basic introduction to the art, and should get you soldering in no time!

Torch soldering or with an iron? What are you confused about, maybe I can shed some light on the subject.
Third hand thingie, where can I find it? Love them both that you created

Good info here. I learned this technique to make some jewelry for a friend and then realized how useful it is in so many other projects.
