Soldering – Construction of Electronics

A Recent Built Electronic Kit.

A Recent Built Electronic Kit.

We are getting very close to where “the rubber meets the road” in our electronics work.  We have worked in design a bunch, but now we need to start talking about skills.   There is no make of the create unless we make it.
The first and probably in many ways most important skill to learn is how to solder.

I would give myself about a B grade on the soldering job I did on the electronics kit I built recently.  My biggest problem was the soldering iron I was using,.  The tip on it was shot and in the future I need to invest in a good one.   I will be making some recommendations once I research the market for soldering tools.

In my teen age years I taught myself how to solder by reading materials on the subject.  Later when I was in the army I had a class on the subject and they were very particular on how they wanted things soldered.  The electronics we worked on would be subjected to lots of stress from heat, cold and humidity and vibration and stresses from acceleration and rough handling.

The embedded video is very good at showing how to solder and is much better than anything I could produce.  From that video you will be able to grade my workmanship on my kit in the photograph. The video has a link to the site that produced it and you may want to check out that site also. CuriousInventor.com
