Can You Solder Different Metals?

Unread postAuthor: mach10 » Wed Jul 29, 2009 2:10 pm

Can you solder metal other than copper? If so what metals can you solder, and is the connection as strong as with copper?

Yes, except for aluminum, I think. Just use silver solder and flux. I know anyone can do steel, copper, brass to each other. There are kits for aluminum but I have not tried them myself.
