How To Solder Electronics Components – Video For Beginners

This video shows you how to solder electronics. Soldering is very easy and simple to learn, so this video is not too long. We have a webpage with full color hi-res images as well here:

You can find much more detail on the website.

This video is divided up into two parts. First, how to mount electronics to a circuit board and prepare them for soldering.

The second part shows you how to actually solder.

It really is quite easy. Practice and have fun with it.

    come on dude, wheres the meshing and the tinning, thats why your tip looks like the cookie monster turned to eating copper.

    the board that you  are using does it matter which side of the board you solder the parts?  i dont see any pads on the board, is that board a practice board type?

    You missed a lot of stuff in your video. You don’t talk about the soldering iron itself and wattage. What about keeping the tip clean and tinning it. Then there is the solder and the different types. Cold solder joints. Etc. Nice try, but you can do better. I know you know this stuff. Thanks anyway.

    how do you usually solder wires to a board? From the same side as other components or vice versa? The first way is more beautiful but the second one is faster and reuqires less space

    If you snip the pins after they’ve been soldered you can crack the solder joint, leading to failure down the line. Tack one pin with a spec of solder to hold it in place, then crop the pins and solder.

    Thank you for posting this. I hadn’t soldered anything it a long time, and your video helped refresh my memory so I could reattach a component on a toy that was broken and now works.

    this was actually a great video! i was soldering for the first time in my life and the simple tip of pressing the iron down while feeding lead made my solderings so much better
