If you've been keeping up with my blog the past few days you'll be expecting this post. I believe we're on Stage 5 today.
Once each piece has been trimmed and burnished with the copper foil it is ready to be reassembled and prepped for the soldering process. Here are a couple of pictures that give you an overview. Once the piece is reassembled you can see how the copper foil edges each piece. A liquid chemical called Flux is then brushed on the foil to prepare it to "take" the solder bead.
I'll update this weekend with a picture of the soldering process if I have enough hands to do all at the same time!
Here's hoping everyone has a wonderful weekend! With gratitude, Laurie B.
