GIVEAWAY: 4 boxes of roisn flux

Today we giveaway four boxes of rosin flux that we bought in Shenzhen. This is the stuff you need to make your own DIY flux. Just crush the rosin and mix with IPA. Forum members report that it’s good flux, and doesn’t smell as bad as some brand name fluxes. Leave a comment below, and we’ll pick 4 winners tomorrow.

    1. Yep. Rosin is the solid form of resin from pine trees. You can collect the resin yourself from the tree and hard dry it in the sun for few days to get a good rosin for soldering flux.

  1. Ohh! I wanna make my own flux!! I allready have 4 bottles of alcohol :D

    Too bad you can’t buy this stuff easily and cheapily in NL :(

  2. Oi! When i was a kid i remember seeing huge globs of dried resin on the sides of trees. if only i’d known!

  3. My son plays the Violin and I muck about with electronics. 1 Give away and you would make 2 people very happy (though you would annoy my wife.. she can’t stand to be in the building when he practices *grin* )

  4. “Free fluxin”, sung to the tune of Tom Petty’s “Freefalling” now all i need is to perfect my Weird Al voice… Oh and I guess get RCA’s permission or something.

  5. “Things of this world are in so constant a flux, that nothing remains long in the same state.”

  6. This is the first give away I am responding to as I am really into home chemistry. I so want to try this.

  7. Is it too late to comment for consideration of the drawing?
    I’d really like to check this flux out.
