all seems well except it works a little bit slower then it did on the bread board
Are you using the Microprocessor from the breadboard or a different one?
it does not blink once a second i would say about once ever 2 seconds
Do you have a scope or does your multimeter have a frequency function? It could be helpful to know what is the rate you are actually toggling (and if it is stable.)
another thing, any tips on how to solder components with out having to tape them on
For smaller components, I use painter's masking tape (the blue kind.) It leaves very little residue behind. I'm careful not let the tape touch leads (like on a resistor) to avoid burning the tape.
For larger things like the headers, I only solder in the first pin. Then I use my fingers (or pliers) on the "cold end." Re-apply heat to the first pin and adjust the header as desired. Once that joint sets, I solder the rest of the headers. In the past I've also plugged headers into a breadboard and soldered that way. If you decide to go that route, you definitely need to skip every other pin to keep heat from building up. Which is good advice anyway.
