Introduction: PCB Practice
I just want to help the beginners to sholder tracks on dot PCB. So I've decided to make one instructable in a simple way.
Step 1: Materials Required
1)Small dot PCB.
Step 2: Pattern
Take one small dot PCB and with the help of a marker draw the above given pattern on it.
You can even draw parallel line if you feel difficulty with the above pattern.
Step 3: Step by Step Instructions.
Step 1: Sholder two dots as shown in the first picture.
Step 2: Join those two dots with some lead as shown in the second picture.
Step 3: Sholder all the dots as shown in third picture.
Step 4: Keep joining two consecutive dots as shown in fourth picture.
Step 5: Now join four dots.
Step 6: Now join all the four dots with next four dots and continue till the end of the line.
Step 7: You will get a track as shown in the last picture.
*Note* At starting you can use more lead , but as you keen on practicing use as less lead as possible. And also use moderate temperature. As I'm using basic sholdering kit I haven't mentioned above.
Step 4: Adding the New Next Line
Now draw the next line. So that you will be getting a "L" shaped track.
Continue the pattern till you get a close track. Make sure that you don't join the last dots.
Step 5: Internal Tracks
Start sholdering the internal tracks by following the previous steps.
Make sure that you don't join the adjacent track.
Step 6: Done
Keep practicing this pattern until you become an expert in sholdering tracks on dot PCB.
Thanks for watching my instructables.
Any queries feel free to ask.
Soon I will publish an instructable on how to sholder electronic component on dot PCB.
