On soldering and other new techniques

I am teaching myself to solder with a soldering iron and lead-free solder with a high content of silver, so that it really shines. All the equipment was an investment, and I found out that paying more really pays off in therms of quality of equipment and safety. I tried both a cheap and an expensive soldering iron, and the expensive one with interchangeable tips and a safety light was so much better, it was worth the price difference. I also went all out and bought an inland fume trap with coal filters, and a breathing mask. But lung cancer is not an option for me, I rather spend the money in all the equipment than regret it later.

Pictures to come...

I love my life.
