Silver Solder Question

Clem Wixted
>I was given a short piece of what I was told is silver solder to use to mount a tip on a turning tool.

I have an electronics background and it is "flexible" just like regular solder used in electronics and looks the same.

I thought silver solder would be quite stiff and "bright."

It walks and sounds like a duck. Can it be silver solder? :-)

Thanks,

Clem
