    Soldering Soldering Presentation Transcript

    • Melt some metal Soldering
    • Why Soldering?
      • Build your own components
      • Fix a broken part
      • DIY hardware options
      • You like building/tinkering
    • 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
    • Basic Equipment
      • Soldering iron
      • Tips for the iron
      • Rosin core solder
      • Well lighted work area
      • Clean work area
    • Soldering Iron Types
      • Basic on/off
      • Basic temperature controlled
      • Digital temperature controlled
      (the one I use)
    • Available Tips
      • Conical
      • Spade
      • Chisel
      I most often use the conical tip when building Christmas DIY projects
    • Optional Equipment
      • Tip cleaner
      • Extra hands
      • Exhaust fan
      • Magnifying glass
      • Panavise
    • Panavise
      • Many models
      • Great for holding boards
      • Allow lots of movement
    • 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
    • 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
    • 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
    • Desoldering
      • You will have to do this
      • Desoldering wick
      • Solder sucker
      • Desoldering iron
      • Hot air station
    • Other Soldering Options
      • Soldering SMT components
        • By hand
        • Reflow/Skillet
        • Reflow/Toaster oven
    • Practice Options
      • Commercial solder kits
      • DIY solder kits
    • Website Links
      • Do It Yourself Lightanimation (wiki and soldering practice kits)
        • www.diylightanimation.com
      • MPJA Online (solder station)
        • www.mpja.com
        • Solder Station Model 302A - part #15141 (the one I have)
