How To Solder - Our Tips & Tricks - Plus First Time Soldering Ever For Our Little Sister
In a previous video we got a lot of comments about soldering header pins onto the Raspberry Pi Pico, so we made this video where we talk about our tips for soldering, tricks, soldering equipment & we teach our little sister to solder for the very first time so you see her first attempt in this video.
We do some tinning, solder some header pins, led strips, & dissect solder to look inside. Keep reading for links to the products we use.
As our brother said, a good soldering iron is key. It needn't cost the earth ours was and Antex XS25 (about £25) you can find the links below.
Also if the surface has been exposed to the air for an amount of time a little clean up with rubbing alcohol and the use of flux can make all the difference.
Most importantly, don't think our results are always perfect. Sometimes we really mess up, even now so don't be disheartened if things don't always turn out how you'd hoped.
