Soldering station

Created on: 31-12-2018  By Gee
I ordered my soldering station and all the paraphernalia a while back as can be seen with the date on my last post about it.
Finally today the last, and main, part arrived. It arrived whilst I was geeking (should that be gee-k ing) around with starting my Ben eater computer.
Obviously, I just had to have a play around with it straight away. I set out my heat resistant mat, which had mega static when I took it out of its bag. I hope I managed to destatic it before working on my raspberry pi.
I tried a couple of different soldering tips before I found one that I can work with. My first attempt at actual soldering was to solder on the header to my pi zero that I want to use for creating and programming things in the future.
I've yet to see if it works as there's still some flux left on the pcb, and I have not got anything to clean it off with. I'll find something to clean off the flux and post up my results.
