I've been using lead/tin based solder for most of my life and when a youth use to play with pure mercury which was a lot of fun. I will die of some cause but I suspect that solder and past contact with mercury will not be the reason.

No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)
