Soldering Guide

1). Hold the soldering iron like a pen.

2). Gently touch the soldering iron against the joint you are going to be making.

3). Holding the solder in your spare hand, gently feed the solder onto the joint whilst keeping a steady hand. Remember the solder shouldn’t be applied to the tip of the iron, it should be applied to the joint.

4). Whilst being very steady, gently move the solder and soldering iron away from the joint you have just made.

5). If you have done it correctly it should be a cone or volcano shape.
