I'm kind of surprised there are no stickies about this, but i recently purchased a pwm board for arduino and i need to solder the headers on.
Ive got about ten minutes soldering experience, and it didnt go well. So, im hoping there is a good guide or walkthrough i can use.
Also, i bought a weller pen solderer and .010 solder. Is that right? I dont want to spend a lot of money on a solderer, no more than $50 ideally if my weller wont work.
The first time i tried to solder it seemed like the solder wouldnt flow, but the led strip i was soldering melted? I bought a "helping hands" welders tool, but thing is tiny and doesn't seem convenient...
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated!
