Soldering tips

  • Butane soldering iron works great for ventilated area’s because they get too hot and vaporize the solder / chemicals / paste aswell.
  • solder fumes use a large fan to move air the carbon pad filters seem to make a stink of their own but are for cleaning soldering fumes too.
  • desoldering braid seems to not work the best.
  • Wash PCB’s with hot water after soldering parts , wipe with paper towel and let dry.
