I just meant should I bend the pins on the PCB after sliding the LCD on to form joints for soldering? This picture may help: http://www.instructables.com/image/F8QNF5Q0DIEWP8729Q/How-to-Solder.jpg The pins are angled. When you say straight pin header do you mean you're using a header beyond what was included in the kit? Sorry for all the basic questions.
I just got my Twatch. I ordered the version without the LCD attached to the PCB. Iâ€™m somewhat new to this stuff; this will actually be my first soldering project. I really want to learn. So I just want to make sure that Iâ€™m set, and that Iâ€™m assembling it properly.
Just from looking at the LCD and the PCB, Iâ€™ve noticed that Iâ€™ve got sixteen pins and sixteen pinholes so Iâ€™m assuming that those are what I need to solder? Is there anything else that I need to do beside that?
Also I know that I need to pickup a cover for the jumpers and an AC Adapter, aside from that does anyone have any tips?
