Learning to Solder 2007/11/15 20:19
Nagoya
I'm trying to learn how to solder, but I can't find any stores that sell electronic components or starter kits. Nearest major city is Nagoya (I'm in Mie). Any clues?

soldering on. 2007/11/17 12:59
Is almost a lost art. I have an electric iron and a coil of solder, can do crappy work on small electical connections like car sound and kit toys, which is a good idea to solder connections .I repaired car alternator Diode rectifier unit on a Subaru with it once, was successful.
The old Guy next door I got to do larger heavier job like applying solder to the alligators and cable of sets of car jumper leads.
Id be surprised if there are not websites and books on ebay offering how to advice on it.

Rule 1 is everything clean as a whistle, of course.
Late Grandfather was originally a tins-smith. Could out-solder anyone. Doubt they even have tin-smiths anymore.
