I would like to try my hand at silver soldering. Can anyone suggest a source for solder and flux? I am familiar with the process, just never done hard soldering. Taught electronics high reliability soldering in the USAF, and remember my Dad soldering with an acetaline/air torch many years ago. I even have his torches and acetaline bottle. Only problem is the hose for the torch has dry rotted to the point I won't use it. I do have a mapps gas/propane torch that should work. I don't want to invest a fortune in hard soldering equipment as I don't know how often it would be used.
Also a source for fire brick to make a soldering hearth.
