Introduction: How to Solder LEDs Using a Simple Jig

About: It's not important who I am or what I know. What is important is what I can teach you.

Holding LED's in place for soldering can be a bit tricky. So I invented a simple jig to make the process easier. I will explain how to make duplicates of the jig, but it is real easy to make just one. An alternative method is to clamp two pieces of wood together, then drill between them.

Materials Required
Any block of wood over 25mm square

Led

Wire

Solder

Masking Tape

Tools Required

5mm Drill

Drill

7mm wide Screw Driver

Hammer

A saw of some kind

Soldering Iron

Step 1: Making the Jig

Step 2: Using the Jig

    cheers koko.

    Obviously switch to a 3mm Drill for smaller LEDs.

    I hope it has made life easier for you.
