Abstract

A continuous length of solder wire 10 is provided with uniformly spaced identations 16 by indentation tool 11. Tool 11 comprises roller 12 having evenly spaced radial indentation blades 13 and spacer disks 14 with knurled edges 15. The size of disks 14 can be varied to control the depth of indentation 16. By indenting wire 10 precisely metered amounts of solder are obtained. This is because when heat is applied to a segment melting occurs only to the point of indentation 16. If wire 10 has a flux core 17 precise metering of flux as well as solder is obtained since sealing of the flux within the segments occurs at indentations 16.
