Elecraft kits are designed to be easy to build and get working, but
the tools you use are just as important as the kit itself. To make sure
you can build your kit successfully, please follow these guidelines.
|Never use the following,
as they may damage your printed circuit boards and make your kit unrepairable:
Kester “44” rosin core solder (.020 or .031 diameters are easiest to use).
Radio Shack .022" 62/36/2 silver-bearing solder. (#64-013), $3.79 for a 1.5 oz roll.
Any 60/40 or 63/37 rosin flux based solder.
