Things To Do

  • If this is your first time soldering take your time. There is no need to rush.
  • Use either solder wick or twisted bundle of small copper wires to remove excess solder. Place the solder wick over the solder you are to remove and then place the soldering iron on top of the wick. Use pliers to hold the solder wick so you don't burn your fingers.

Things Not To Do

  • When finding a place to "put" all the electronics be careful if you are mounting them to the cartesian-bot frame. If the contacts on the back of the PCBs touch the steal rods you may fry the board.
