copper solder
« on: September 21, 2011, 08:50:52 PM »
Hi all, I am in the UK and I am searching for copper coloured solder wire and cannot seem to find it even online.
I dont mind buying it from the USA if I have too.
Can anyone tell me where online I can get it from?

I need it to solder copper wire to copper sheet but I want the solder to be copper coloured and not silver like normal solder is.

Thanks very much for any help you can give. :)

Hi there,

Have you tried Etsy?  I did a search on Etsy here in the States and there are a few shops selling it - this is one of them - http://www.etsy.com/listing/78485202/copper-solder-wire-hard-10-foot-coil?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=copper+soldering+wire&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_ship_to=US&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_type=supplies&ga_facet=supplies.  It's $2.50 for a 10 foot coil 20 gauge and $5 shipping to the UK. Not sure if it's what you're looking for and/or if it's a good price but thought I'd let you know anyway. I've never shopped with HodgePodgerie before but they've got 100% feedback from other customers.  Hope this helps or at least gives you another direction to search.

If the copper solder doesn't work for you, another thing you can do is use silver solder and then put the piece in a contaminated pickle solution. It causes a reaction that will copper plate the solder.
