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

  4. Hoi Marleen,

    Dank je wel voor uitleg. En ik heb de soldeerspullen wel liggen in de schuur. De dubbelzijde plakband heb ik niet aan gedacht. Erg bedankt voor een goeie tip! Want bij mij gaat elke keer mis en nu weet ik waarom mis ging, hihi.

    Wat erg van je hand. Dat deed zeer.

    Liefs Lisette

  13. Ooooo, did you put toothpaste on your hand, they are effective to soothe light burns. I get burnt by my solder all the time and I am quite scared of the tool so I do not solder well. So far I only try to solder wires without much success because teh iron just does not seem to melt! :):)

    That's why I was s interested in this post :)
