    Re: HOW and WHY to Solder Correctly

    done a solder course many years ago
    great video that good to show others how not to do it 1st and then how to
    many people that think about soldering always panic and hold the solder tip on the wire to long and wonder why it sticks to it.
    my tips for soldering
    Watts 15-30 max
    FLux
    Small tips very essential in soldering onto mobys
    Lead free solder
    and not to be scared of doing it get an old pc moby few wires and practice once you get the nack you never look back

    Re: HOW and WHY to Solder Correctly

    why lead free solder ? Sure its RoHS safe but such little exposure to "lead" solder will not kill you !!! Lead free solder flows at much higher temps so advising novice users to use it will most likely cause them to lift pads, especially if they are not using temperature controlled soldering stations.

    Re: HOW and WHY to Solder Correctly

    Good soldering tips, however using the QSB's that come with the nand x leave no margin for error, you end up stripping the board of its solder points if you are not precise with your technique.I got through 4 jtag (kit 8's for xenon) before finally getting the method right. Blobbing the solder on the tip and applying it to the QSB + contact on the M board with plenty of flux worked ok for me.Maybe someone with more skill than me should post a video on good QSB soldering methods as i struggled and i imagine many others did with these delicate QSB's

    They are only delicate if you are applying your iron on for long amount of times or are using your iron at a very high wattage.

    I was brief with the amount of time the iron was in contact, however you have a point with the wattage of my soldering iron 30W oopps, still learning.....but I still think you need a good technique to get it just right.

    I use an adjustable iron and set it at about 30w and it works great. Though I have years of experience.

    I use an 18w Antex Iron. It's a good iron. Not silly expensive but not crappy cheap. They also have a really wide selection of tips. I like my 0.2mm tip, great for LEDs.
