How hot should the nail be? How do I heat the nail?
Oh, so I asked how hot - and I saw farther down to "cherry red"...good enough for me. I wondered at the heating element and saw that there are a multiple of options. I guess whatever works, eh? These are incredible. May I say adorable? I don't want to make you feel unmanly! :-D
Great, thank you! Your tip on the soldering iron is great and makes me think it would be perfect for something like the melting cups for copper (sorry, I suffer from short term memory loss - can't think of the name). I did already buy the Ruby-flux but your answer tells me I'm ok - and I don't have to use both. :-) Thanks again!
