New paperback handbook published
After publishing a Kindle e-book version of my Basic Soldering Guide, I’m pleased to launch a paperback version called the Basic Soldering Guide Handbook. This unique new 84 page book is printed in full colour throughout and contains more than 80 photos illustrating the whole process of soldering by hand.
No prior knowledge is assumed. Everything that you need to know about starting is soldering is here, commencing with explanations of different soldering equipment, solder, fluxes and tools followed by step-by-step photo sequences of p.c.b. soldering.
Examples of tasks such as l.e.d. wires, flying leads and potentiometer soldering are provided along with basic reflow methods. Then various desoldering techniques are discussed, with more quality photography showing clearly what readers are likely to expect in real life.
You’ll gain a good understanding of all the critical factors that affect the quality of a soldered joint. Extra resources for training and education are supplied, including a Troubleshooting Guide and Basic First Aid guidance. With a multitude of colour photographs, the Basic Soldering Guide Handbook is a complete training resource in its own right and the book explains everything you need to know to start soldering with confidence in next to no time.
