Soldering Is Easy comic book

Posted on Monday, April 11th, 2011 in documentation, skills by the machinegeek

Here’s a cool resource for teaching soldering basics to anyone. Mitch Altman, Jeff “Mightyohm” Keyzer, and Andie Nordgren just released their “Soldering is Easy” comic book. It’s part of a book they are working on that will be published later this year.

    This is a nice-looking effort, but I say that it still falls short of the mark.

    I found about 5 or 6 bad pieces of advice in the comic, and 1 or 2 very helpful things that I was taught that are missing. And, no, I’m not expecting to read a comic titled “Expert Soldering is Easy” – the changes I would suggest are still within the realm of “easy” soldering hints.
