Book Description

6 Jan 2011
This book is the complete guide to simple soldering. Soldering Made Simple takes all the mystery and fear out of soldering so that amateur jewelry makers - even those who have never held a torch - feel empowered and confident. Friendly and thorough instructional text and step-by-step photos help readers build skills gradually, which they can then employ with the included projects. Joe Silvera presents soldering techniques that use a simple setup, a handheld butane torch that is safe and easy to operate, and a few other supplies.

5.0 out of 5 stars ITS ALL IN THE DETAIL 27 April 2011
By JHOPE
Format:Paperback
I found this book more informative about the finer details of silverwork than any other. Most skim over vital topics such as pickle and what it does and how to use it etc but this covers pretty much all the nitty gritty of the topic - A - Z++
The photographs are good and cover each part of every process clearly and with good instruction. The projects are great and also cover mixed metals.
Well worth having

5.0 out of 5 stars Problem solved 22 Mar 2012
By LinD
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book that really dug me out of a hole. Was having problems successfully and consistently soldering and this really helped not only give me the techniques and some extra knowledge, but also to realise that it just takes practice, practice, practice and not to give up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed 21 Oct 2012
By CMR
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent little book packed with information for the beginner or someone wishing to improve their soldering techniques. Contains a good mix of general information and well explained projects with lots of stage by stage pictures to complement the text. I would recommend this text to anyone new to silversmithing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book - Very Inspiring! 13 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
This book covers everything you need to know to start soldering.
The book is divided into two sections: tools and techniques; and the projects. The projects are simple, inspiring, and demonstrate clearly the techniques used.
Best jewellery book I've ever bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed 8 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This is a great book, full of useful information and projects very clearly written. I have been working with silver for two years, but still dip back into this book for odd bits of information, which is a true test of how useful it is. My only quibble was that like many craft books it was published in the US, so there was a difference in some of the terminology and measurements, and possibly availability of some of the products. But overall, the value of the content makes it a very worthwhile purchase.
