    I found an old Hakko element for my Hakko 907 iron ...But my problem is that I have use a torch to solder the lead to the ceramic element because the wiring is different but what kind of solder can I find locally in order to solder these wires and able to handle the temps ????
    I was thinking about using silver solder but not sure if that was a wise choice and i only need a small piece too....



    Thanks

    Silver solder needs borax flux and heating to dull red heat.

    What temperatures?
    I do brazing, I do all sorts of melted metals, but I don't know what you want.

    A propane tank can be fitted to a soldering tip. That would keep flame from splashing all over the object of desire. Lower temperature is a soldering gun, Weller 140W or 250W. Higher is Mapp gas, then oxy-acetylene. I have all of these, but I don't know what to recommend.

    Keep talking.
