Many thanks for all of your replies. I pretty much do all of the things mentioned and have all the crosslock tweezers and use borax flux etc but have to admit even though I have seen small chips of solder being used I haven't tried it yet nor have I used the urine flux so I will have to keep my eyes open for that. I tend to use Johnson Mathey Easyflo silver solder rods which are 1mm in diameter but no matter how small the joint the silver stands out against gilding metal so part of the reason for my initial post was to see if anyone knew of a low melt brass coloured rod so I think I will have to take up DumDum's advice and contact BOC to see what they can offer.

Many thanks again

Paddy
