I just want to solder silver jumprings

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 06:48:45 -0800

I've searched, and the information is overwhelming. I just want to know: can I solder silver jumprings closed with a soldering iron? If so, what kind of solder do I need? And if not, what is the cheapest possible way to do this? The jewelry store will charge me like $10 per, and this is unacceptable for my purposes. This is for small silver charms. Doesn't have to look perfect, but I also don't want to poison myself. If you need more detail: I want to put some of my silver charms on a larger jumpring so I can wear them on my Pandora/Trollbeads bracelets.

I need to find some supplies for reworking smd hardware.

I need to buy some reballing materials like solder balls and some kester 951 i believe no clean water soluble flux. I need to obtain these items preferably as close as possible to Waterloo Region Ontario Canada. I need some ideas on how to get this stuff cheaply and effectively. Also any links to the shops that I just cant find would be great.

f.lux my mouse cursor

Mon, 16 Jan 2012 05:15:36 -0800

Using f.lux with an ATI video card and the latest AMD Catalyst drivers, how can I get the mouse cursor to change colors with the rest of the screen? At night, my mouse cursor is bright white compared to the rest of the screen which gets really distracting. Are there any advanced settings in Catalyst or registry hacks to get the mouse cursor to behave like the rest of the screen?

My final option is to actually change the mouse cursor physically to amber... which I don't want to do.

Magnetic Flux passing through an area?

Tue, 13 Nov 2007 21:46:18 -0800

Physicsfilter: Is the magnetic flux passing through an area Φ = BA or is it Φ = nBA*cos(θ)? I just sat a Physics exam and my friend and I are not too sure which is the correct answer. He asked some teachers, but the answers (at the time of writing) aren't very satisfactory. Physicists and electrical engineers: what is it?!

No Sweat!

Can I safely use stearic acid & rosin flux when I sweat copper pipe? I'm learning to sweat solder copper pipe. I'm getting better at judging temperature and making cleaner joints, but on my way there, I discovered that some acid-rosin flux I had lying around for electronics work gave me better joints than the water-soluble flux they sell nowadays for plumbing.

Am I courting disaster by using acid-rosin flux on copper pipe? Or is it (as I've heard) just an environmental regulation thing: they want people to switch over to an inferior, but environmentally friendlier, substitute flux?
