I had to zoom in on that one.
I'm not really trying to avoid soldering, but I just don't have the ability to do it right now. I live in a very tiny 1 room place. I don't have any safe place to setup a hot iron, and I have no place to vent any fumes. I tried soldering a couple years ago when I bought the starter kit, and it got really bad in here quickly. The fumes started to give me a headache.I need to wait until I get into a bigger place so I can do it correctly, and vent the fumes.

@raschemmel:That's one helluva story; thanks for sharing it.
Personally, I've never had a problem with solder fumes, other than acid-core (when I used it for metal working) - fumes from that will make your eyes burn and your throat raw.
Your welcome. I think it would be fair to say it was my "trial by fire".Me either. I love the smell of solder in the morning.... It smells like...victory.
Me too - love the smell of rosin.
You definitely don't want the smoke going up your nose.
