equipment

  • Ok I'm just ordering a range of LEDs to test out and I'm just wondering if there is any other equipment I might need as I've not soldered anything in ten years!

    I have:

    60/40 Solder
    Weller Iron
    Solder Sucker
    tweezers
    snips

  • Maybe some flush cutters? Makes it easier to cut the leads of the back of the pcb.
    Not necessary though, just makes for a neater job.

  • yeah actually the ones I have are huge too.. good point.
