Flux core, lead-free solder

  • Description: 0.032“ flux core solder is used to form semi-permanent electrical connections. Common solder contains lead, and hence can be hazardous if the fumes are inhaled or the material is handled a lot. Non-toxic lead-free solder is recommended, but is harder to work with. Read and adhere to all safety precautions on the packaging.
  • Purpose: Soldering sensors to extension wires.
  • Source: Hardware stores, electronic stores (e.g. Radio Shack) and on-line.
  • Approximate Cost: $2 to $3.
