Hi!

What sort of flux do you use when soldering? Solid? Liquid?

Bonus if I can order it over eBay...

Thanks in advance!

I use liquid rosin flux in a pen: MG Chemicals 835-P

ChipQuik no clean liquid flux. One of the few fluxes Digikey will send to Europe.

I don't know, it gets the job done for me. Cleans up super easy.

I like the QuikChip SMD no clean. Actually horrible to remove if it gets cold but makes work a snap.

the flux i use is just Pro'skit clear jelly-type stuff which I buy from taiwan. leaves a mess but works very well.
also - i use kester leaded solder these days its lovely to use compared to all the other solder i have ever used. a jeweller friend of mine at work also knows and recommends kester. not cheap though :(
