Even if in the future they make this brand in China, I will still buy it as long as it's as good as now.

I also have been using this solder for years. So, I agree with the rest of the reviews. It's sold at the local Ace and TruValue hardware stores. It used to be made here in the U.S.A.! It used to say Alpha Metals. Now, it's made in Mexico and says Alpha Fry. It's still the same Quality solder as before!

This solder roll is the 31605 which is the thin wire one. If you prefer a thicker wire, simply buy the 31604 roll. Except for the wire thickness, they're exactly the same. Both are 4 ounces, so you get the same amount of solder. Both are 60% tin and 40% lead, so you get the same percentage.

For some reason, most people buy the thicker wire 31604 here at Amazon. I prefer and recommend the thinner wire 31605 because you can use it for large and small projects. With the thicker 31604, you tend to apply too much solder in small projects.

This stuff is amazing! It melts and flows when heated with my soldering iron, then when I remove the iron, it re-solidifies, leaving the wires and electrical terminals permanently attached to one another. It even conducts electricity! Seriously, you really can't go wrong with solder from Alpha or Kester unless it has been sitting around for 50 years in a corrosive environment. How is it that these two companies have staved off the invasion of foreign suppliers? Must be doing something right. The retailer also deserves a share of credit--the correct item was delivered in a timely manner.

I've been using this solder brand for some years now. It's the same brand that's sold in local hardware stores. It used to be made in the U.S.A., but now it's made in Mexico. It's still a great product. Even if in the future they make this brand in China, I will still buy it as long as it's as good as now.

This is some great solder. As a theatrical electrician, I am soldering very often. I love how thin this is, how it heats, and has a decent length before getting too hot. I've used it on very thin vga wire, up to two 12awg wires soldered together cleanly to make twofers. Worked great each time.

This is an extra soldier I bought to accompany a starter kit that we are just beginning.
It is quality and melted exactly as expected.

Good stuff. Can't beat lead. This is the type of solder you need for large gauge leads( I build tube amps) the no lead stuff works "OK" for PCB's but I have issues with "no lead" when I want a stronger connection with larger gauges wires and turrets. This stuff just flows nice. I don't know if this stuff is going the way of the 60 watt incandescent bulb or not- but a person would be smart to get a couple rolls..

Good quality solder for tinning wires or mounting components to a PCB. Melts easily and evenly (used with a Hakko FX888D at 750 and a Weller WESD51 at 700). A couple fellow electrical engineering friends used this solder with me on a project and were going to get it when they run out of current stock. Any future solder I buy will be from Alpha Metals

Lead/tin solder is only kind I can make a decent solder joint with - I've tried the silver/tin combos but it takes so long to reach a melting point that my work looks like it was performed by a two-year old. I've used the Alpha products for years with great success. This review is more about Amazon and their amazing delivery system. I ordered this at 7:00PM on a Saturday evening and it gave me a delivery date of the following Monday which I assumed was a mistake since Saturday and Sunday are not postal business days. Imagine my shock when the delivery woman dropped it at my door at 11:00AM Monday morning. I'm not sure how Amazon does it - perhaps we should just give them the post office since they seem to know how to make it work.
