Capstone Project - Tabletop Fireplace
Overall, this is an excellent 'ible! I completely agree with R.E.K. Another problem I see is students attack the joint with solder and iron, then remove both - and then attack again. This allows the joint to cool down between applications and can result in a non-connection (cold joint). The best method is to place the iron on the pin and pad and leave it there. Keep adding solder (in multiple steps, if necessary) until the joint looks good. Once happy, remove the soldering iron. The iron is the first thing to touch the joint, and the last thing to be removed.
