supply of the metal was the strongest
objection to its adoption.
One of the greatest objections to the
extensive use of this metal in the arts,
and especially in the manufacture of
scicntificnud mathematical instruments
hfor which it was peculiarly adapted by
its extreme lightness and resonance,
aside from its cost, had been the diffi
culty of making good joints.
In 1885, M-. liourbouze, an eminent
French metallurgist, after an extended

means of soldering aluminum success

and tin, bismuth and aluminum. He
found that the metal could be soldered
