As some of you know, I am waiting to move into our new accommodation and meanwhile much of my tech kit is in cold storage – very frustrating. I have the loan (from my very kind friend Jonathan) of a soldering iron but no de-solderer and the iron is heavy, great for some prototyping, not so good for surface mount.
So I was very excited this morning to receive this kit which not only contains a nice thin, temperature controlled, mains powered 60w iron with base, sponge and a de-soldering gun but also spare tips of varying sizes, two sets of tweezers and a set of mini screwdrivers and various soldering aids. I could not have asked for more.
Included in the kit is solder and a pad for the included base, indeed, all in all, very comprehensive as seen in the photo above.All of this in a rugged case. I’m familiar with this design of temperature-controlled iron so I have no doubt it will work a treat. Very exciting.
Between that and my new chair, life is good. I hope you find the links above useful. I’ve done a short YouTube video to go with this but apologies in advance as the microphone that comes with my bluetooth Logitech headset is not all it might be.
Here’s a link to the short video I did on this… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2Ay-zwV96k
