Classes will be catered to small groups of 2-6 people at a time. You will get undivided attention and go home knowing exactly how soldering works and possibly fix your own gadgetry that requires soldering.

What will you be doing?

  • Learn about the different types of solder.
  • Different techniques of soldering / desoldering.
  • A little history about soldering.
  • Learn to strip wires with and without tools.
  • Solder a AA battery pack to power up a LED or other gizmos.
  • And of course hands on training using a professional soldering iron.

At our repair shop we have a junk yard full of pcb boards everyone can practice on. We currently use very high end soldering irons that are totally different from cheap sub $100 ones you find at retail shops. So rest assured it will be a cool and entertaining experience.
