You'll never need to use it if your delicate when the equiptment. I only learned the skill to repair crap that i broke by bein careless.
i just went out and bought myself a solder gun kit and taught myself how to solder because i am putting in a computer in my car and im sure i will have to solder at some point, so i learned now and i am happy i did...its nott hat hard and i thought it was going to be a lot more complicated...any ideas on when i am going to need to use this info, if ever? im just glad i accomplished something today
Who says soldering is just for repairing? I use soldering to make stuff all the time.Originally Posted by Sonicxtacy02
kudos. i taught myself when i was younger and i use it all the time. especially for work. its really cool. i was telling my dad "remember how i used to go off into the basement and tear stuff apart and play with all kinds of electronics and stuff? helped me out big time now when i sit down at a work station to repair sensitive equipment to maintain air force communications equipment...keeping the bad guys dead and the good guys alive."
Sometimes I use my soldering iron to discipline the kids. :O

If you're going to be picky, you don't HAVE to use soldering when you break stuff either. Just buy a new whatever it was that you broke.Originally Posted by Sonicxtacy02
Glad you did.Originally Posted by Stillalive2029
The first thing you will need to use the soldering gun is the power wire.
I am talking about the BIG wire coming from the battery. When connect to an inline fuse or distribution block, it alway better give the end of the wire a little solder before attaching it. The same method was use for speaker with spring loaded terminals.
I learn it by watching my uncle doing it. I screw up big time, but getting better now. That doesn't mean I won't screw up again
