If you have a soldering iron, or in my case a soldering station, tell me how you use it and what you make with it! I really need some new projects i'm all out of ideas. just another quick question, has anyone ever heard of a store called active? it is the best store in the world for electronics,tools, components etc.


As for the soldering station. There are several good soldering instructables. My Soldering 101 instructable is about as basic as you can get.

Have you browsed halfbakery.com? I'm also still waiting for someone to get around to making an evil-cackle operated hand dryer. Ummmm . . . there was a fellow on here last week asking for help making a strip of LEDs that light up sequentially (like Knight Rider's "eye"). I was going to make that into an instructable until I received my robot create kit. That takes precedence. Anyhoo . . .

Type in Active Electronics, you get their online site.

This morning I am making my 5th Altoids 9V Charger. One Question: My charger isn't following directions from the "Minty Boost", am I still allowed to post it? I am done 4 currently and they all work great.

Generally, what I make is a mess - I'm not skilled with a soldering iron. The last this I made was the 555 circuit from the Minty Beating Heart instructable - it will (eventually!) make a dragonfly twitch.

sayal? i have never heard of them before!! cool.
