Antique Radio Technical Forum

::Can anyone tell me what is the best solder to use on a 50's circuit board radio. I am afraid of burning the circuit board. I have used on AA5's (Radio shack .050 dia/1.5 oz/---63/37).
::Thank you,

The solder you have is fine. It melts at the lowest possible temperature, with 60/40 a close second. There are others, but they have other uses. I personally use 60/40 because it is what I have. 63/37 is a little more money, but what I have is probably 15 to 20 years old and suits my needs. I have half pound rolls, so I won't need to buy more for a while.
