£0.80 – £124.95
Jewellers Solder - Bronze / Copper / Brass
This solder is intended for soldering metal pieces together for jewellery making - we sell brass, bronze, and copper solders.
It has a more colour accurate look than Silver solder when soldered. These solder pieces are sold in one foot lengths (although they are almost always 1-2CM over for fairness).
I've restocked the Bronze, Copper, and Brass solders as of 09/2021.
Bronze Jewellers Solder
Our Bronze solder starts to melt at around 700c and will flow at 800c approximately. These wires are 0.8MM thick approximately - one foot lengths.
Copper Jewellers Solder
This Copper solder has a melting point around 700c and will start to flow at around 800c approximately. The wire measures around 1MM thick in wire form and sold is in one foot lengths.
Brass Jewellers Solder
The melt temperature for our Brass solder is around 600c; the flow temperature is around 700c. Sold in one foot lengths of 0.8MM wire.
It can be done with propane, oxy, etc. It may be possible with a micro Butane torch but I have not tried personally. I would highly recommend experimenting with various things - if you are having trouble soldering, try using a solder pick.
These solders should not need flux, but we would recommend experimenting before trying on an actual piece as it does behave differently to silver solder.
These are hard solders to cut, and we recommend either a piercing saw or a good pair of tin snips/aviation shears. I use a pair of brake cable cutters for a bike - obviously, I cut this solder daily!
While we sell this solder by the foot, you may receive several pieces totalling the length you ordered. This is purely to save on packaging and postage costs for you.
Frequently asked questions and delivery information
How do we grade stones?
There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.
How does our ordering and delivery process work?
You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.
I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.
How do international orders work?
After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.
I’d like to return my order for a refund.
No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.
What payment methods do you accept?
I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
