Topic: Soldering 101 with Geordy

Geordy will have a short slide deck with some basics and SOME tools but most folks will need to bring the following if they have it available:

* Soldering iron or preferably a soldering station like the Hakko 936 http://amzn.to/jWNMdT or the Aoyue clone http://amzn.to/l6tt0V but if you aren’t 100% committed yet, we’ll have some of these around to use.
* sponge or other tip cleaner (if your soldering station/iron doesn’t have one)
* flux pen http://amzn.to/mhP0lm
* superwick desoldering braid http://amzn.to/mjjijd
* Some kit to work on http://www.vellemanusa.com/us/enu/product/list/?id=523008 (please keep it reasonable if this is your first kit. $10-$20 price range or Level 1)
* Good quality rosin core solder such as Kester 44 or something from MG Chemicals. (DO NOT BUY LEAD FREE, it sucks!) http://amzn.to/kTnBAJ
* small wire clipper/cutters such as these http://amzn.to/mf9LqD

Most all of this stuff is available locally at Vetco in Bellevue on Northrup Way or at Frys. I would NOT suggest buying a soldering station at Vetco. Frys might have decent prices on the Hakko if they still carry it. I have a limited amount of tools and supplies I can share with the class but please don’t count on it.

I’m going to cover all things related to through-hole soldering in this class including desoldering and safety issues. Bringing a kit to solder is totally optional but it’s a great way to learn since you’ll have me right there to help you navigate any problems that you may run into. I’ll start the class at 1pm and we’ll go as long as we need to. We won’t be covering surface mount techniques this time but if this class goes well, I’m open to holding another one where we build up a kit with surface mount parts. Please speak up if you are interested in this class so I can prepare accordingly.

June Meet / Campout Info

Posted in Meetings at 09:31 by noid

Just a reminder that DC206 is this Sunday the 19th. This months meeting is a big f’ing BBQ for Toorcon Seattle. Everyone from DC206 is invited to attend. BBQ kicks off around noon and runs till 6 or so. We currently have 2 kegs of Mac ‘n Jacks beer and a sponsor picking up the tab for our meat. We will also be having vegetarian options, side dishes, and desserts*. In addition to all of that we have a full Capture the Flag hacking network set up as well as retro gaming stations. In short, you’d have to be high on drugs to miss this Sunday’s meeting.

Also, we want to remind everyone that the DC206 campout is this upcoming Thurs (6/23) through Sunday (6/26) down at Lewis and Clark State Park just south of Chehalis. Unlike last year’s rain soaked endurance contest, this years camping trip is currently looking like the typical weather we get when we camp: cloudy, 70s, nice hiking weather. If you want to come, technically you just need to show up, however we’d also like to know you’re coming in advance so get on the mailing list and let us know you are. As with previous campouts you can expect awesome food, good people, and lots of outdoorsy activities.

Disclaimer: Standard disclaimer applies. Folks under 18 years of age are welcome at our events but must have a parent or legal guardian with them at all times. You must be 21 to drink alcohol, our events are no exception. If you look young, be prepared to show ID. If you appear inebriated at any point, don’t be surprised if we cut you off. Also, drugs are not welcome at our events so please don’t bring them. Our shop has power tools and all sorts of things that could hurt you if your head’s all messed up.

*desserts may or may not be vegetarian friendly. If you’ve ever had my wife’s cupcakes you know why..bacon in everything.
