from Works great, but priceyI bought it to see if I wanted to spend the extra money on Kester brand, and if I wanted to get the .050", as I had been using .031". It works fine, but I don't see any advantage over the cheaper solder that I have had for years. I have been soldering since I was 14, some 51 years ago, but I am not a professional. Perhaps there are advantages to this brand that my amateur eyes don't see. Or, maybe not.I'm glad I have it, for times I need a wider diameter solder. And maybe I will some day advance to the level of solder connoisseur, so I'll appreciate the Kester label. But I just ordered a pound of the cheaper Parts Express solder at the .031" diameter for my general use. Hope that will work as well as the little hand-held tube of no-name brand .031" that I bought years ago and have almost used up.
