A couple of friends asked about soldering as a beginner so we made this video. We intended for it to be a short tutorial but it ended up being a fairly long video.
We go into the basics on the tools you need and then some tips on desoldering and soldering. We also go into the basics of capacitors.
By no means are we experts at this but we have a lot of success repairing retro equipment and we strongly recommend learning basic soldering skills if you collect retro electronics.
We obviously accept no blame for any injuries to you or anything you own or love, always take care and concentrate on what you’re doing.
