That's my experience too. I've used it for some electronics without
problems, though I've found some alloys easier to use than others. I've
also used the same lead-free wire recently to solder some stainless
steel, and had no trouble -- though like Chuck I wasn't relying on the
flux in the solder wire for that. It flowed well and made a very neat
finish, better than leaded actually.
