Metals with high thermal conductivity are generally difficult to weld, but:

The thermal conductivity of silver decreases as its temperature increases.

This means that silver can be welded better when it is warm!

  • Weld several times on the same spot, this increases the temperature.
  • A continuous welding sequence keeps the workpiece warm!
  • The workpiece as a whole can get up to 100°C hot, which does not damage any stones, but is very uncomfortable to hold with bare hands!

Hold the workpiece with pliers, polishing fingers, etc.!

Silver, unlike most other metals, has a thinner welding behavior, therefore it is pushed forward by the arc and not pulled in the direction of the electrode movement.
