Thread: Can anyone ID this Solder?

    Can anyone ID this Solder?

    My neighbor was cleaning out his garage the other day and found these. He kindly gave them to me. He said that this was the solder they used to solder roofs onto cars. I noticed on the bars they are marked Dutch Boy 20 Body Solder. Does the 20 refer to the tin content or lead? Was wondering if anyone has ever used some of this for sweetening a pot of WW's or such? Haven't tried any yet. Don't want to waste it until I find out some more info on it.

    The body shop solder I have seen was kind of soft with maybe a little tin in it. That’s been 35 to 40 years ago.

    That one is 80% Lead, 20% Tin. Should be great for sweetening WW's.
