My favorite half-teaspoon measure hit the floor with a surprising sproing:
The weld lasted far longer than anyone should own a spoon, I suppose, but it wasn’t much to begin with:
Having had much the same thing happen to a measuring cup from the same set, I cleaned the back of the spoon and the front of the handle with a stainless steel wire brush in the Dremel and gingerly re-bent the handle to remove any inclination it might have to break free again:
Some 60% silver solder (the formula evidently changed in the last few decades), nasty flux, and propane torch work produced a decent fillet:
It looks a bit worse on the far side, but I’ll never tell.
Rinse off the flux, wire-brush the joint, wash again, and it’s all good.
I thought about excavating the resistance soldering gadget, but the torch was closer to hand and a bigger fillet seemed in order.
