HOWTO Solder – The basics of soldering, photo gallery

If you are trying to make any one of our Christmas DIYs including the ones below, you
will need to learn to solder. Soldering is not really complicated, you just stick a little
bit of Lead to the soldering tool and that’s pretty much it but here are some pictures
to do it the “text-book” way.

EPE Magazine has a good gallery and text on the basics of soldering… “These photos illustrate the basic steps in making a perfect solder joint on a p.c.b. If you’re a beginner, our advice is that it’s best to practice your soldering technique using some clean, new parts with perhaps some new stripboard (protoboard). Be sure to avoid using old, dirty parts; these can be difficult if not impossible to solder.
