do you know of any more that are about a pcb? like the one for the 50 dollar robot
a good way to start soldering is to have a decent iron, not something that cost $15 and has been sitting in the garage for 10 years.when i started soldering i was using my dads old iron and the tip was about as wide as my pinky andthe tip was corroded real bad.i generally try to use 40-65W irons but if you have some extra cash laying around get a temp controlled iron!otherwise remember this. "the hotter the iron the shorter you have to solder but the less likely you will damage your components" with a lower wattage, you have to hold the iron on the for longer thus increasing the chance you will overheat a component.
