Transcript

  • 1. Melt some metal Soldering
  • 2. Why Soldering?
    • Build your own components
    • Fix a broken part
    • DIY hardware options
    • You like building/tinkering
  • 3. Safety First
    • Always be careful, you are working with extreme heat
    • Soldering irons melt metal
    • They will melt skin
    • They get very hot and can start fires
    • Never leave a soldering iron unattended
  • 4. Basic Equipment
    • Soldering iron
    • Tips for the iron
    • Rosin core solder
    • Well lighted work area
    • Clean work area
  • 5. Soldering Iron Types
    • Basic on/off
    • Basic temperature controlled
    • Digital temperature controlled
    (the one I use)
  • 6. Available Tips
    • Conical
    • Spade
    • Chisel
    I most often use the conical tip when building Christmas DIY projects
  • 7. Optional Equipment
    • Tip cleaner
    • Extra hands
    • Exhaust fan
    • Magnifying glass
    • Panavise
  • 8. Panavise
    • Many models
    • Great for holding boards
    • Allow lots of movement
  • 9. Solder Wire Basics
    • Use rosin core
    • I prefer 60/40 tin/lead solder
    • Size, I recommend .032 (7 or 8mm)
    • Roll size
      • Radio Shack has the small rolls
      • I usually get 1lb rolls
  • 10. Soldering Process
    • Heat soldering iron
    • Clean tip
    • Tin tip
    • Apply heat and solder to component
    • Touch soldering iron to one side of pin, touch solder to the other side of the pin
    • Allow solder to flow
    • Remove soldering iron briefly and retouch
  • 11. Helpful Hints
    • Solder most items at about 325° C/620 ° F
    • Larger items or components with heat sinks will need higher heat because they dissipate heat well
    • Bigger items like triacs, turn the iron up to 400° C/750 ° F
    • For triacs it may help to trim the legs to desired length before soldering
  • 12. Desoldering
    • You will have to do this
    • Desoldering wick
    • Solder sucker
    • Desoldering iron
    • Hot air station
  • 13. Other Soldering Options
    • Soldering SMT components
      • By hand
      • Reflow/Skillet
      • Reflow/Toaster oven
  • 14. Practice Options
    • Commercial solder kits
    • DIY solder kits
  • 15. Website Links
