Soldering

It is the basic tool for circuit making just like screwdriver for a mechanic. It is used to join two metals together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint (like a wire to a switch). There is an advantage of soldering that you can de-solder and re-solder easily if you have made a wrong circuit.

 

Things needed while soldering:

1.Soldering iron

2.Soldering flux

3.Soldering wire

4.Stand (for safety)

5.Damp sponge (for cleaning the tip)

For robotic purposes, we will rarely need a temperature controlled soldering iron. You can buy the cheapest soldering iron available in the market but the basic question is

In metallurgy, a flux is a chemical cleaning agent which facilitates soldering, brazing, and welding by removing oxidation from the metals to be joined. Common fluxes are: ammonium chloride or rosin forsoldering tin;

Just ask for 60:40 solder wire. Solder wire is a mixture of tin lead in a specific ratio. Care should be taken , not to overheat a device, also static discharge may render ic useless. room should be ventilated. Tip of iron should be clean and tinned
