What i use for soldering

I will show you what tools I use for soldering.

When you first see a small pliers including cutting pliers,
 flat-jaw pliers in 2 different versions and a round mouth-tang.

In addition to the picture you see a bottle of acrylic paint from Aleen's,
which I use to make nice big round circles,
  And an ordinary color pencil  from the  color-box of my youngest son.
That I use to make smaller circles.

I use solder paste (greas) and lead holding solder tin
(60 tin 40 lead)

then my tile with double sided carpet tape on it

I use an ordenairy soldering iron just a cheap one
i bought at a discount supermarket!

I use galvanized iron wire of various thicknesses.
You can also use copper wire for soldering.

And ......two hands to work with (LOL)
You most not let the solder iron fall on your hand like i did just a few minutes ago......

It realy hurtssssssssss!!!

With love,Marleen
