RE: maggie SMGa water based repair glue options?

So the big issue with soldering aluminum is the quick oxidation of the metal. I was replacing all the wires on my build so I didn't want to chance it. To much heat and you start melting components around what you are trying to solder.

I would call the folks at Kapp and see what they have, I don't remember specfically what I used or if their product lineup has changed. It wasn't expensive at all and it made soldering really easy.

Copper wires have a lot more mass than aluminum. I would stay away and stick with aluminum.
