Another Soldering Quandry!

Another Soldering Quandry -  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

I recently purchased “solder copper wire”, Silver Solder hard and Silver Solder medium.

I want to know if it’s possible to get each of these solder types to melt using only a propane torch?

I’ve attempted soldering copper with each of these and have not had any luck getting the solder to melt and form a bond.

Any help will be appreciated.

I’m sure the info is available somewhere…I just haven’t found a description of the appropriate torch requirement for the various types of solder.
