Soldering Tools

on Tue Aug 14, 2018 8:45 am


The only tools that are essential to solder are a soldering iron and some solder. There are, however, lots of soldering accessories available.Different soldering jobs will need different tools, and different temperatures too. For circuit board work you will need a finer tip, a lower temperature and finer grade solder. You may also want to use a magnifying glass.

Soldering Irons
Soldering Iron. It is a device used for applying heat to melt solder in attaching two metal parts. A soldering iron is composed of a heated metal tip and an insulated handle. Heating is often achieved electrically, by passing a current, supplied through an electrical cord, through a heating element. For electrical work, wires are usually soldered to printed circuit boards, other wires, or small terminals. A low-power iron (15-30 Watts) is suitable for this work.


Soldering Tool Stand
It is a place of the soldering iron to keep them away from flammable materials. The stand often also comes with a sponge and flux pot for cleaning the tip.


Soldering Accessories

Soldering Iron Tips
Try to use the right size tip whenever you can. Smaller wires and circuit boards require small fine tips, and mic cable onto an XLR would need a larger tip. You can get pointed tips, or flat tipped ones (sometimes called 'spade tips'). If you have a solder station with a desolderer, you will also want a range of desoldering tips and cleaners.


Clamps
Soldering Clamps strongly recommend clamps of some sort. Trying to hold your soldering iron, the solder, and the wire is tricky enough, but when you have to hold the connector as well it is almost impossible. The are however, adjustable clamps that can be manipulated to hold both the connector and the wire in place so you still have two free hands to apply the heat and the solder. These are cheap items, and I know mine have paid for themselves many times over.


Solder Wick
Solder wick is a mesh the you lie on a joint and heat. When it heats up it also melts the solder which is drawn out of the joint. It is usually used for cleaning up solder from tracks on a circuit board, but you will need a solder sucker to clean out the holes in the circuit board. Place the wick on the solder you want to remove then put your soldering iron on top of the wick. The wick will heat up, then the solder will melt and flow away from the joint and into wick.


Solder Suckers
Solder SuckersIf you don't have a solder station with desolderer, and you work on PCB's, you are going to need one of these before too long. They are spring loaded and suck the melted solder out of the joint. They are a bit tricky to use, as you have to melt the solder with your iron, then quickly position the solder sucker over the melted solder and release the spring to suck up the solder. I find solder wick to be easier to use and more effective.

Most of soldering irons used in the electronics are in range 20 – 60 Watts. Soldering iron with wattage 50W is very common these days and it will provide sufficient heat for most of soldering projects on the circuit boards. Soldering irons with higher wattage (40W -60W) are better.

On a Soldering Iron stand maybe?
I think we can create a stand on our own, we could use our creativity. Cheap right? Cool

Do we really need all of this soldering tool to have a good solder?

I think we just need the soldering iron and Led to have a good solder.

For soldering one of the most important thing we need to use is a flux or soldering paste.
