Topic: Superglue instead of solder? (Read 9812 times) previous topic - next topic

My experience with soldering was terrible and I thought I would need years of practice to be effective at it. Then I bought a decent soldering iron and the difference was night and day. Instantly all the difficulty I was having vanished. When I say decent I spent $50 for a wand style one with a base.

Yep. A lot of cheap soldering irons get far too hot and have horrible tips on them.

You don't have to spend a lot of money to get a good soldering iron but make sure it's suitable for electronics work, not for soldering big lumps of iron together in a garage.

Look for something with low wattage and a sharp point on it.
No, I don't answer questions sent in private messages (but I do accept thank-you notes...)
