1011601 SolderingIn this chapter, I will first give a simple introduction to soldering of through-hole PCBs and then look at the more difficult but still perfectly possible soldering of SMD boards.
Tools You do not have to spend a lot of money on tools for soldering PCBs. You can get perfectly good results with low-cost equipment. You wouldn't learn the violin on a Stradivarius, so don't buy a top-end Weller soldering station as your first soldering iron. Gradually improving your tools is one of the joys of electronic construction. Where would the fun be if you had the best of everything from day one?
