    A soldering iron (240v type ) would not be hot enough I'm afraid. Depends on the thickness of the material as to how you would approach this. I take it you are trying to make the chain "rigid" ? and then form some sort of shape at the bottom. ?

    If you need anymore help just ask.

    A soldering iron would not be hot enough to melt links or solder.

    Don't know, but I doubt it would look very good, the normal method would be to use a microwelder I think.

    started a topic soldering silver chain

    soldering silver chain

    Is it possible to use a soldering iron to 'lock up' the links of a snake chain by melting the links together with a dab from the tip of the iron, to form a shape at the botom of a chain that is part of the chain, if that makes sense?
    Although I have never really done any silversmithing, I have a lot of experience of metalworking, soldering, making mokume gane etc, so I have a fairly good set of skills to draw from.
    thanks,
    alfie.
