  2. Mercury (Hg)
  3. Cadmium (Cd)
  4. Hexavalent chromium (Cr6+)
  5. Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)

Guitar,

you need not solder the collector / case of a TO-3!
This is the way I did it - and: this is perfect.

Invest in some clean free solder flux.

No - I won't.

I rather invest in 100ml of ISOPROPANOL 70 and use my old tooth-brush - which is much cheaper!

I don't think ISOPROPANOL 70 will fix those solder joints.
