I'm finally getting to the end of a 2-lb spool of 60/40 0.05" (18
gauge?) rosin core solder I bought from Radio Shack years ago. This
time around, I'm considering:
* 0.032 (21 gauge?)
* Water-soluble rosin core
Frankly, I'm enough of a hedonist that I'm happy to use as much lead as
needed to make my life easier.
I do mostly circuit board repair, and some PCB prototyping. Any
opinions or recommendations as to what solder works the best?
