I am getting ready to make my IC like BobbyM video. I have a really old roll of solder but it doesn't say lead-free anywhere on it , so I'm counting that out. Well at work we have all kinds of solder.

The roll that is in question says:
BernzOmatic Silver Bearing Lead Free Solid wire Solder SSW800

Is this cool to use?

Any help is much appreciated.


Thank you,


BMW-LDB

It doesn't say "lead free?"

That solder should be fine.

I think he is saying that his old roll dosn't say lead free.

I'm not a plumber, but that sounds fine for me. Also, if you go to a major hardware store, you can ask if its safe for plumbing, all of those should be lead free I imagine.
