    Know How... 7: Soldering

    Know How... 7: Soldering

    Soldering is an essential skill to learn if you like to mess with hardware. The best way to learn soldering is by doing it. Practice, practice, practice.

    What is Soldering?

    You're joining two metals by melting a filler metal. That's the solder itself.

    Materials List

    Soldering Iron
    Solder (lead free) (Rosin core, NOT acid core)
    Wire
    Wire stripper
    Helping hands (optional, but helpful)
    Alternatively, you can get a kit like the Elenco AmeriKit Learn to Solder Kit. It's roughly $15 and comes with everything you need to start practicing.

    Safety

    Assume the soldering iron is hot.
    Be in a well ventilated area.
    Wash your hands after handling solder
    Practice!

    Heat up your soldering iron
    In line splice

    Grab some wire and remove some insulation with your wire
    Twist the exposed wire together
    Tin the soldering iron with a small amount of solder.
    Remove excess, retin as necessary
    Twist the exposed wire together
    Heat the wire with the soldering iron
    Place the solder on the wire, not on the soldering iron. The solder will flow onto the wire.
    Good luck with your soldering!
