Low Temp Solder - Carr's #70 and Red Label flux
Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, September 9, 2004 8:46 PM

I am looking for a source for Carr's #70 low temp solder and red label flux in the US. I found in the UK. Any help would be appreciated. I read an article in an old Tamiya Mag and the stuff looks perfect for PE. In fact that's what they were assembling with it.

Not sure if this stuff is available in the US, as I believe Carrs to be a UK company.

You could try ordering it from the UK, but I'm not sure on the laws governing the international transport of such things, seing as it is corrosive.

Best bet try a model railroad hobby shop as brass kits are a lot more common in railway modelling, and so the railway LHS' usually stock the supplies needed to support this.

Hope it helps.

I think just about any low temp solder will do what you want. For years when I needed low temp solder, I checked the RC section of my hobby shop. The last batch I bought was a couple of years ago and was packed by Sig. I had a friend at work tell me the Radio Shack has a low temp paste solder but I haven't checked that out yet.
