    Hi everybody, whilst soldering today my lead was melting more than I've ever experienced (doesn't happen often and I'm new to this) my iron is a Wellar and one I was advised to get but it doesn't have a thermostat, a too hot iron is the only reason I can think of that the lead would melt, also, I'm not holding the iron on the joint too long, it's literally a touch then off but leaves a hole in the came! Hoping you all have a remedy for me. Thanks Mairi

    I want to make a stained glass trellis using a metal trellis from the lawn and garden store. I made a trial run at it and wrapped the bars with copper foil and then the glass and soldered the two together but I'm thinking there has to be a better way. Any ideas
