SPECIAL NOTE: SOLDER PRICES TO INCREASE VERY SOON

  BUY YOUR SOLDER NOW! THE TIN MARKET HAS HAD DRAMATIC INCREASES IN THE PAST FEW WEEKS
BUY NOW!

Since our last delivery of solder arrived, the Tin market has had a dramatic swing upward. In the past year, most price swings in the tin market were more on the nickel and dime theme. But now, the price jumps have been in the multiple dollar range.

Our next solder shipment is due in the next week or so and will have to reflect these increases. But until May 1 (or while supplies last), we will keep our current prices.

 WARNING: Products on this page can expose you to chemicals including lead which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.
