Basic soldering

Soldering isn’t very hard but there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Use the correct temperature, 350 degrees C is good for general work
  • The soldering iron tip should make contact with both the PCB and the component you are soldering
  • Feed solder into the side opposite the soldering iron tip, not the tip itself
