Soldering aluminium and stainless steel - input for an Instructable Answered
I am currently working on a new Instructable covering the topic of soldering aluminium and stainless steel.
As I am "old school" and don't like to waste money on special equippment unless really necessary, I would like to get some feedback on what to include.
So far I covered the basics of the materials, the general how to and what to llok out for.
Pics and videos will be made once I am happy with the tutorials to give a better understanding.
Aluminium is considered to be hard to solder with no experience and I would like to try to make it possible for the hobbiest to do it, same for stainless steel.
For example: Should I include my recepies for stainless steel fluxes or limit it to the procedure of actually doing it without any flux?
Is is better to document with nice pictures or videos showing the entire process? (asking the noobs that want to learn it)
Is it necessary to go into details like what solder alloy is best for the purpose?
For me it is quite hard to go back to a "I know nothing about it state" and make sure everything a noob might need is included.
But the longer I work on it the bigger the Instructable is getting with informations that not everyone might need, like how to properly clean the surface, remove the oxide layerand provide the right temperature for the job.
Trying to keep it simple but complete and not drifting into boring details is harder than I tough on this topic :(
Feedback and requests are welcome!
