OK

This is probably a dumb question for most of you, but what is the best way to clean the wax off the AristoCraft track screws?

Maybe heat the wax with a grill starter flame and then spray some brake cleaner to clean any wax residue off the screws.

Also, what kind of solder should I use if I decide to solder the joints together?

Thanks

Thanks for the tips.

I picked the wax off two screws and attached two pcs of track together while sitting on the couch watching a movie. The wax came off the screws much easier than I had expected. While the allen screws stayed on the driver this time without loosing any, I'll wait to work on the rest at the table so I don't loose any. Being that this current layout is temporary, I'll be using jumper wires in place of soldering the joints.
