Does anyone have experience with whitemetal casting?

Since the changes 50/50 solder with the melt point around 400f is no longer available because of the regs. getting lead out of things.

I have built about 200 white-metal models of BRITISH manufacture.  Here we tend to use a softer form of white metal than is seen in the USA, but I have never used any kind of solder.

Instead, I use the sprue that the parts come on.  That way I know that the metal of the model and the solder are of precisely the same alloy content.

I began building white metal models over forty years ago, and none have fallen apart yet!  Wink

Having a controllable soldering iron is a MUST, though.
