    I agree with Doctor What:  Nice.  Soldering is something that cannot be taught by a book or static photos.  Watching a short demo is about all it takes. 

    I haven't soldered a real project in years, but I always tinned my leads first.

    Soldering is easy, but you need to get a feel for how long it takes to heat the parts up sufficiently.  When I first started, I was paranoid about damaging parts, so I'd 'dash' in and out.  Hopefully a video gives people a sense of how long it should take.
