WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF SOLDERING

Hi, so this is the second hands on assignment we were assigned. This was a group project. My team mate was Calye Brown.

We tried our hands at Soldering!

Bill of material:

  1. SOLDERING IRON
  2. DAMP SPONGE
  3. WIRE CUTTER
  4. WIRE STRIPPER
  5. HELPING HANDS SOLDERING
  6. DRAWDIO KIT
  7. GEL PAPER
  8. DESOLDERING PUMP
  9. CIRCUIT BOARD

WE STRIPPED A WIRE ON EACH END AND SOLDERED THE WIRE TOGETHER .

I stripped the solder wire, with the wire strippers on each end. Then attached the the solder wire to the helping hands. The helping hands have claws that on each end, which grips the wire to hold it in place, while you used the solder iron.

We had stripped to wires to solder. This shows the use of the helping hands. How you can use each claw at once.

If you take the time to notice the Blue Gel  paper in the picture.  The Gel paper is used to catch the material debris as they fall off.
