Tripods & Screen Wire Mesh

A tripod is primarily used during “sweat” soldering, a technique used to solder a (usually) flat piece of metal on top of another larger one. Solder is gently melted on to the back of the smaller piece - melted just enough so that it flows as evenly as possible across the back but not so much that it actually starts to flow of the metal itself.

This smaller piece is then put in position on top of the larger piece, the work is then refluxed and the solder melted again. The trick is to make sure that this time you keep the heat mainly on the larger piece of metal so that you don't melt the smaller piece.

It can also be placed over an alcohol lamp or Bunsen burner to keep a wax pot/dish warm.

Also available:
  • Dish crucibles for melting and preparing enamels/wax, Cousins Ref C0413, C0412
  • Light weight mesh, Cousins Ref S20866
