1/4" is like 2-3 gauge... would work great for bike exhausts in 1/24 scale eh?

Ok, got them.
Good lied the package was heavy for it's size!
They are actually a bit too thick for my current project, but I have other things I can use them for.
The thick 1/4" stuff is super easy to bend!
Pretty amazing, just need to remember to wash my hands after using this stuff

Sounds like a great source for that type of material.
Solid Core is the way to go and yes, take precaution when handling.
Have fun and happy model detailing.

Forget washing your hands. Wear latex/plastic gloves when handling it. Make sure you have a respirator on, cuz of the lead dust. You might even want to think about special clothes, so you don't get children or animals poisoned.

I found some lead free solder at radio shack, how can I tell if it doesn't have rosin? I cut some off and cut it apart, no goo but I don't know if they mix it or something...

RH,

Do a baloney cut with the #11 xacto blade and check out the middle of the solder.
Look for a off color core center or a pinhole center.
Good luck.

Ill try that tomorrow
I cut a bit off and it looked hollow, but had nothing in it. I tried squeezing it like toothpaste and looked for any goo, couldn't find any... I'll take a picture if it.

That is not a good sign, but I could be wrong.
