The Aristo track solders very nicely using 60/40 Rosin Core Solder. I used a liquid soldering flux on the joiner and track before using the solder on my Aristo sectional track. I used a small butane fired torch to heat the brass track and then touched the solder to the hot track and joiner. This melted the solder causing it to flow into the joint. I tightened all of the joiners first by pinching them first using pliers, making them so tight that I had to carefully tap them on the end of the track using a small hammer. This made for a tight fit of the joiners on the track and I ended up not using the screws at all. I soldered anywhere between 3 and 5 sections together and then connected those sections using Hillman Clamps. That was 4 years ago and I have had no problems.
