Yeah, the Pops is fine, his wrists are all healed up and he has decided to avoid setting up ladders on icy pavement
The kit that I linked includes a little bit of rosin core solder. And yes, rosin core will be perfect for your needs - it has a mild flux that helps bonding. Anyway, good luck with your repair. Cheers!
Once again, thanks for the one on one 'hand holding'... I've ALWAYS tried (hard) to treat others the way you've treated me > with kindness and remembering everybody is at different skill levels, different cognitive abilities, often relative to certain subjects at hand (I sailed through Medical School, but my brain doesn't work quite as sharply with mathematics, I'm mechanically DEclined LoL - I literally use a calculator to calculate dosing when body weight is involved > just zero conceptual planning/imagination on my part... If I can't read in book and apply fundamentals to higher levels of mastered human anatomy/phsiology, which has just always made sense to me; then I'm struggling... Have to build or plan a deck? There are 15yr olds who could run circles around me LoL)
As you can surely deduce, I have a strong disdain for forum community members who flame and seem to have been blessed with a specific cognitive area, in which they thrive, whilst making them ARROGANT... I get it, "Bruh, use google" is often the least rude, but still an blind from arrogance reply. If you've seen and answered same question(s) and are sick of it - perhaps those would be better suited outside of a COMMUNITY > everyone needs to observe and calculate both sides of every situation to be truly wise... Wisdom is only obtainable when it is accompanied by humility and empathy.
So, I just wanted to spend a much deserved few minutes to both thank you and congratulate you on being on the path to true wisdom and being a decent, kind, humble HUMAN. May someone, several times over, take something you are overwhelmed by, and offer to impart their mastery in a way that makes you understand, without attempting to humiliate you - as you've done for me
*BTW, did your pops happen to sustain scaphoid breaks in wrists? Typically that's the overwhelming injury when trauma occurs with outstretched arms/hand attempting to break falls... It THE single bone in the entire body, I believe, which receives the least vascular blood flow support, vital in the healing process - making recovery times upwards of 3 months in cast and often require mechanical screws.
Take care, my friend.
Grateful and I am,
