  • Breadboard Basics

    When working on electronics, a breadboard is one of the most important items in your prototyping toolbox. 

    What is a Breadboard?

    A breadboard is a rectangular plastic box filled with holes, used to test circuits.

    No soldering is actually done on the breadboards, but instead they are used to prototype circuits by poking wires and components through little contact holes to form a complete circuit. Continue reading

  • How to Desolder

    Once you have got the hang of soldering, you will quickly learn that desoldering is also a very important skill to have.

    What is Desoldering?

    In electronics, desoldering is the removal of solder or components from a circuit board, allowing you to rectify any mistakes or make repairs. In some cases it can be a crucial skill, that is even more useful than soldering itself. Continue reading

  • Improve Your Soldering Technique

    Soldering is defined as "the joining of metals by a fusion of alloys, which have relatively low melting points". In other words, you use a metal that has a low melting point to adhere the surfaces to be soldered together. It is the only way to fix components to a circuit. Continue reading
