    There is a cure for this.........
    Get your son better tools than the ones you own.

    Be proud your son is able to acquire those skills.
    There is a measure of independence that comes from being able to make something from nothing.

    They can take my job.
    The hand of fact can rob me of part of my eyesight.
    But nobody can take away my skills.

    It may be the same alloy (60/40) but apparently is from numerous sources, which vary widely in quality. At least name-brand manufacturers (ERSIN, KESTER) have a record of quality of alloy AND the rosin they include in their solder.

    Sure glad you told me! I guess a lot of smart folks have been wasting their time.

    You going to tell NASA or do you think we should sit back and watch them spin their tires?

    :D
