Has anyone ever repaired a metal mold?


Recommended Posts

I usually put my metal molds into the oven and set the temp to about 170 degrees. When the preheat bell goes off I take them out and wipe them down. Well, I decided to put them in for a few min. while preheating the oven for dinner. Of course my 4 year old distracted me. The next thing I know the preheat bell went off. Thats right, I heated my molds to 425 degrees. When I pulled them out the solder was melted right off them. My husband tried to resolder them for me, but the solder just keeps balling up. Is there a special type of solder I need to use to repair these. They are farely new molds, I hate to scrap them.
