Soldering Question??

Jennifer@Indy.USA
>Hello Everyone,

I'm having issues with some soldering. I'm trying to replace a HSS tip onto my little hollowing tool and I can't seem to get it to stick? I put the flux on the tip and I dipped the silver solder in the flux.....and when I heat it up, the silver just balls up and doesn't flow? What am I doing wrong? Al Crandall taught me how to do this over a year ago and I'm wondering if I'm missing a step, or if I shouldn't be putting the flux on one or the other parts? I'm using silver solder, the appropriate flux and mapp gas.

Any advice would be fantastic!

Thanks,

Jennifer
