removing soldered foil
by: Libby

This is actually a question: I read in this posted comment about how easily foil can be removed after a cracked piece of glass is removed. Yesterday I tried to remove a piece of glass out of a piece and I could not get the foil to melt out... the adjacent or adjoining foil from a good piece came off with the foil from the removed piece! I ended up pulling the soldered foil off of the whole piece and starting over again, re-foiling and re-soldering the whole thing. Can you explain in detail how to remove the foil without disturbing the foil it is soldered to?


Here is where you can find Step by Step Instructions on repairing a copper foiled project. You will see how to get the foil off without damaging any adjacent foil.
