Wonderful attention to detail.

This looks like a a more long-term, meditative project for me, like building a ship in a bottle.

How do you clean the enamel?
I take an aspirine (acetylsalicylic acid) and push the enamel wire and the soldering iron together on the aspirine and the enamel comes of.
Old trick
The fumes coming of, hurts your eyes, so not a healthy way.

define length, fold/make loop , cut rest ,hook ,twist, unhook , grip wire with forceps (thermo-tube on jaws , so easy on wire) , brush end with sandpaper

then calophone and solder bath ( small well in piece of teflon)

tried eons ago with aspirine , hate fumes and lack of consistence ; it works with some enamels, not with others

calophone , teflon solder bath (on box of matches),hook , forceps and sandpaper visible on second pic

my constant green is on this side of (phone) camera

I tried looking up "calophone" without much luck. I'm unfamiliar with this substance. Is it a dark paste flux in the open container?

my bad

try Kolophonium - for violine bow strings

ancient thingie , used with solder in time when solder didn't had filler

also first solder with filler had that thingie inside

also used 'till few decades ago , plumbing - melt , pour in lead tube , wait to cool off , bend the tube , heat tube , pour it out for later use

so , handy cleaner for soldering tasks


useful links , also showing few more interesting relations .....

Kolophonium – Wikipedia
Flussmittel (Loten – Wikipedia)
Dammar – Wikipedia
