Tinning or...silvering
I recently learned about the existence of a solder paste that contains silver instead of tin. Is it applicable like the tin equivalent for silvering a metal surface?<br>
Has anyone done this and what are the results?<br>

Sorry, it isn't a quote<br>

Just make sure there's NO lead in it.<br>

If you intend to put it on an eating or drinking surface, it certainly can't have any lead in it. Nor any surface you handle. Matt Amt uses a no-lead solder for coating various things, and it is pretty easy to use (for him anyway). I forgot to ask him about coating the inside of my patera with it this past fabrica, which needs to be done. If he's listening in he'll name the product. <p>Legio XX<br>
