Training: soldering iron

This is the page where, in the future, you will find a glorious video depicting the proper usage of soldering irons in Nolop. Until such a video is created, the basic procedure is:

  • Read Mitch Altman’s “How To Solder” comic
  • Don’t burn yourself.
  • Wear safety glasses. The flux in the solder can bubble and spit into your eyes.
  • Be sure to turn the iron off when you’re done.
  • Please only solder on the sheets meant for soldering so as not to burn the table!

Note: To set the temperature on our soldering irons, hold the ENTER button down until the display starts flashing; then adjust each digit of the temperature using the UP button, using ENTER to move to the next digit.

See this guide if this is still confusing.
