    Default Soldering Basics >>Please read if new to soldering<<

    I have composed a short video for everyone who may be new to soldering, or even if you have some experience, this video may be of help to achieve great results at soldering your new circuit board.

    This video will show the technique I use to solder. I used a soldering iron temperature of 675 F (357 C), solder was 63/37 - .031" diameter, with a fine point tip.
    Some suggested reading on soldering irons and tips can be found here.

    Very clear video, Wayne. Your tips are easy to understand because you are seeing it while you hear it. Great job!

    Nice iron - what make is it and where to buy? I especially like the holder for the roll. I have to hang my roll on the wall (I like to pull the solder off the roll, not unwind it - puts kinks in the solder). Very handy indeed. I have a rework station I got for a gift and it has everything including a hot air solder/desolder wand for use on smt devices - but not that nifty holder - (so I guess it doesn't have "everything" after all).

    Just when I had all the answers, they changed all the questions.

    Station looks like a CSI-1A. http://circuitspecialists.com/prod.itml/icOid/7307 Its a great iron.

    Great video! I wish I had seen it before I soldered my 2 boards. But there will be more so I will keep this vid in mind.
    The lights are telling me the time is drawing near.

    There's actually a channel under the unit so that you can pull the solder out the front and it unreels in back (down & under). Somebody was THINKIN' !!


    Longfellow said that in this world a man must be either anvil or hammer.
    But some are neither, they are merely bellows.

    Wayne, thanks. I've been lurking on here the last year + did a small setup for 09, and getting ready to order things to build boards for 2010. Thanks for the great video to help me get started.

    I have a digital Iron and the temperature only goes up to 480F

    Would I need to upgrade?

    Sure that iron's temp isn't calibrated in Celsius?

    I have a digital iron (Aoyue 937+) that only goes up to 480 too, HOWEVER it's 480 Celsius not Fahrenheit.

    As to what model Wayne's using, it looks like an Aoyue 936 or equivalent. They are sold under a number of brands, all from the same factory. In general most of Aoyue's line are clones of Hakko units of the same number. (The Aoyue 850, a clone of the Hakko 850, is a very popular hot air rework unit). The Aoyue 937+ is the same as the 936, except with digital controls.
