Soldering Tip

Introduction: Soldering Tip

If using a third hand and heat shrink to insulate your solder I suggest putting a reminder on one of the hands to tell you to put the heat shrink on before you solder. I would have kept forgetting had I not used this reminder.

    Great idea! I recently purchased heat shrink wrap so I can make my final projects neater. I've already forgotten to put on the heat shrink first. Makes it a pain when you don't have desoldering tape :(

    The heat shrink makes all the difference in the final look of a project. I have a "sucker puffer" for desoldering.
