Hey… today i will give you a small overview of tools we use to solder.
First important thing:

The solder-station
You dont have to buy such a expensive station where you leave a few hunderd bucks in the store. Search for a small station in the net.
Digital Temperature reading is a must have. Besides it should have a changeable needle and a temperature area up to 400°c.

I bought one on ebay for about 40Eur and it works excelent for a year now.

Good Solder Wire:
Buy a good Solder-wire. Dont skimp on it. If you buy cheap solder-wire your results will look cheap too.
Working with cheap solder-wire can be boring, stressfull and annoying. So spend a few bucks on a good roll of solder-wire.

To solder small PCBs you could use a wire with diameter 1 mm. Soldering big parts need a few more. For those cases you should have a thicker piece at home, if you have to solder different things regulary.

Desoldering pump:
Costs about 5 Eur. But its worthe on weights in gold.
I dont know how often i was glad to have this tool while soldering.
If you see it cheap in a store. Grab It!

Helping hand – stand:
Most of the time i dont use a stand for soldering. But in a few cases its necessary.
Not all the time there is a human helping hand in reach.
A few helping hands have a arm with a loup. Pretty nice for checking soldering points.

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for your post. I will definitely be using most of these ideas and thinking
    more and more about what I am doing right with the use of my YouTube video channel dedicated to some of the concerns you have mentioned.
    My partner is also considering the actual way it would be if I developed a blog
    discussing many of the same issues you’ve got dealt with here. Thank you for showing me that thing so obvious. I used to be blinded from it. Your post has truly made an impact on the way I think about my personal work and ideas also.
