No offense taken.

I realize the difference in lead content is important.
There's also probably a big difference in the acid.

But, quite frankly, I find that when I solder I tend to use more solder than necessary, and I'd prefer if plumbing solder came thinner so that it wouldn't be so easy to use too much of it.

I think I'd like to see someone making a plumbing solder that's maybe not as thin as electronics solder, but a lot thinner than the 1/8 inch diameter stuff we're forced to buy now. Something like about 3/32 maybe.
