Last week a friend invited me to a Tiffany style stained glass class. It was my first experience with breaking glass (on purpose into shapes) and a blast.

Stained glass soldering irons are similar to irons for electronics but way beefier. It felt like I was holding an electrified screwdriver. This was also my first experience with using solder without a flux core and using lead solder. Don’t worry, we were wearing gloves while handling the solder.
Nothing like soldering with an iron at 1000 °F and 60/40 lead/tin. pic.twitter.com/mkOpxxAGmE— Jenn (@geekgalgroks) September 24, 2019
I may need to buy another soldering iron….
