I love to solder. I’ve found it to be a surprisingly relaxing and very rewarding process that opens up a world of practical and creative abilities. But before I knew the basic tips & tricks of the craft, soldering was something I only did out of pure necessity (and often with a good deal of frustration!). After attaining a quality iron, a coil stand, some tip cleaner, and a bit more patience, it all made a lot more sense.

If you’re teaching someone to solder, or learning yourself, check out the following collection of videos, links, and tutorials. This info, plus having a functional goal (ie – repairing headphones, lighting an LED) to shoot for, can do wonders for newcomers.
