Can I solder jumprings with the Microtorch?
- Sue, MN
The Microtorch was designed to work with solder and flux to solder precious metal items together, and it will indeed solder jumprings (including the solder-filled jumprings). Soldering is an involved technique that should be studied and practiced. To learn more techniques using solder and your Microtorch, refer to Carrie Edelmann Avery's book, ''Simply Soldered.''
