I have been a hobbyist solderer for about 6 years now, and my skills are very proficient. I have always used lead solder because my experience with lead free solder is awful. But I'm going to college in a few months and I just upgraded to a very nice digital soldering gun because I am making and selling aviation cables online. I am hoping to expand my little cable business in college and if I am going to be soldering often I would like to get away from lead solder.
Are there lead free solders that can be used as easily as lead solder, and if so, if there really any health benefit from lead free solder? Are the fumes from solder toxic, and does lead free solder solve that problem?
