    I'm confused as to which solder I should buy for soldering the YAOSM to my Wii.

    I've found Rosin Core Solder, Clear Flux Solder and Silver Bearing Solder, and High Tech Rosin Core Silver-Bearing Solder, all at Radioshack. Which one should I buy?

    Also, should I buy the tub of flux? How would I use it?

    Thanks

    I made the mistake of buying the Lead Free Silver Bearing solder at RadioShack. For soldering a Wii, I would recommend Rosin Core Solder.

    I bought silver, but I haven't soldered anything yet. Its a good thing I know now.

    I bought it since it was the smallest, the only other one was 32 Rosin Core Solder. That work okay?
