Weller Solder Kit - Welding

What is a basic starter's pack for an electronics beginner?

I always wanted to get busy with hobbyist electronics but being the huge procrastinator I am, I continuously put this aspiration aside. Since I'm also a huge fan of video games, that was the main reason I put it off. Now, I decided to fix some 'life mistakes' like not studying much and consuming all my time in front of the screen without doing anything productive; so I uninstalled all games! Since I'm a Physics student and we are doing a basic electrical circuits lab this semester, I decided to start taking it as a hobby, too. The thing is, I'm also an impulsive buyer. Last time I took this initiative without giving it too much thought, I went and spent 30 euros on a soldering iron and solder that I don't know how to use, a soldering pump, and other unnecessary stuff. Now I plan on doing something a tad bit more organized. So, first of all, here's what I currently own: -A 30 Watt Weller soldering iron /w solder -Solder pump -Soldering braid -A variety of tools (case of various sized screwdrivers, wire cutter and stripper, etc.) -An old PC power unit that I modded to be used as a lab power supply I found a neat online shop with extremely low prices and I was planning on buying some banana wires, a breadboard (220x120mm) and of course a digital multimeter (a very basic, 4 euros one with voltage, resistance, current, diode and some other readings). There is also a rather cheap soldering station that can go from 25 to 60 watts but I'm not sure if I need it. There's a shop in my neighborhood that sells components, too. So, what do you think? Keep in mind that I want to spend just enough money to have everything that a BEGINNER needs! If you have any ideas on my current buy list or any additions, please tell me! Also, a secondary question: how do you think I should get started? Are there some 'basic circuits' that all electronics hobbyists must do? Like the 'Hello World' program that gets a new programmer up and running? Thank you! Also, something else. In the lab, we use both a DC supply and a function generator (AC). Am I going to need something like this? And what about an oscilloscope?


Soldering iron : If your Weller (good choice) is a temperature controlled one, i.e. it takes tempareature controlled bits, then you don't need the soldering station apart from a stand with a solder sponge. Recommend a PTF7 bit for PCB work. It's a fine bit. If you need something a bit bigger then the PTL7 is the one to go for. If your soldering pump is any goos then put the solder braid in a draw and forget about it. Tools: The following come under the heading of highly desirable and dead handy to have around but you don't need them all right away. They ain't cheap but properly used a set of Lindstrom side cutters are the bees knees, Use them for cutting component leads, hookup wire and nothing else and they will last a lifetime. I have a 40 year old pair that are still good. A cheaper set of end cutters are useful too. A scalpel or sharp craft knife for cutting pcb tracks. Small snipe nosed pliers, the ones where the nose is about 2cms long. A small electrical screwdriver (a must have) for knob grub screws, terminal block etc. A set of watch maker's screwdrivers. A set of Allen keys. A set of Torx drivers or at least a few, especially a tiny one as cell phones tend to be held together with them. Tweezers. A stiff brush and an aerosol can of pcb cleaner. A fibre glass typing error correction brush can be handy too. A reel of 60/40 multicore lead/tin solder. Do NOT get lead free solder, it's a mare to use even for the experienced. Large electrical pliers. Large side cutters. A set of BA or metric or both nut spinners from 0BA to 8BA (0,2,4,6,8). A set of BA and metric spanners in the same size as the nut spinners. The list is practically what a professional service engineer would use so as I said buy the bits as and when you feel you need them as they aren't all required initially. PSU: Ideally a 0-30V variable power supply, which could be your first project. Mostly a 12V and/or 9V regulated power supply will do for

Hi!! I want to buy a electronic tool kit...?

I am BE eee student...i need suggestions to buy a cheapest electronic tool kit package online.The tool kit should satisfies all my needs during engineering projects...Also tell me what are tools required for making basic as well as professional projects...thks for ur reply...:) tool kit should support me to do engineering projects in electronics.,so my tool kits should consist of LED,breadboard,multimeter,transistors,resistorsetc


The cheapest tool kit is NOT what You want...... All serious professionals know cheap tools are nothing but a disappointment..... Talk to your teacher and ask what he recommends for tools.... It would be helpful if you let us know exactly what tools you need..... Many techs assemble there own kits to match the kind of work they are doing...... What ever you do stick with brand names like SK Tools, Craftsman, Snap-On, Mac, Fluke Meters, ChannelLoc, Klein Tools, Wright, Weller Soldering tools...... AVOID all made in China or other Home Depot / Walmart tools... They either break easy or will not get the job done...... You will need Torx screwdrivers...... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Craftsman-Profes sional-7-pc-Torx-Screwdriver-Set-Sears-I tem-49302-/150847708888?pt=LH_DefaultDom ain_0&hash=item231f395ed8 Regular screwdrivers... http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-piece-Craftsma n-Professional-Screwdriver-Set-9-47202-/ 110871577473?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&h ash=item19d0760381 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Xcelite-5-piece- ergonomic-handle-screwdriver-set-XPE-500 -XPE500-New-in-box-/170822798825?pt=BI_E lectrical_Equipment_Tools&hash=item2 7c5d50de9 Nut drivers.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Klein-Tools-631- 7-Piece-Cushion-Grip-Nut-Driver-Set-3-ho llow-shafts-/170873623724?pt=LH_DefaultD omain_0&hash=item27c8dc94ac http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Craftsman-Nu tdriver-Mechanics-Tool-Set-SAE-Inch-Metr ic-8-PC-6PT-Socket-/261055140657?pt=LH_D efaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc8195331 A socket set.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Craftsman-154-Pi ece-MECHANICS-Tool-Set-Socket-pc-NEW-/33 0576066044?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&has h=item4cf7de75fc Pliers.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-CRAFTSMAN-3- pc-Precision-Mini-Pliers-Set-Needle-Nose -Cutter-Long-FREE-SHIP-/160831695072?pt= Pliers&hash=item257250e8e0

Yeah, that is pretty complete. Your tool kit will evolve very much based on what you are doing. Some of the tools in my tool box, I made myself to fit specific places or do specific jobs. Your tool box is very important. It keeps your tools organized, and in a place that you can find each item. You learn very quickly to put it back in the right place every time you use it. It is very frustrating to spend ten minutes wasting time looking for something, instead of working on your project. Don't be cheap about your tool box. It is a major component of your equipment.

About this book
A motorcycle's electrical system can be daunting to even the most adept home mechanic. And yet, the more complex these systems become—and the more important to a motorcycle's function—the more useful, even critical, it will be to know something about them. That's where this book comes in with a user-friendly guide to understanding, diagnosing, and fixing the electrical systems and components that make a bike run . . . or falter. Veteran technician Tracy Martin explains the principles behind motorcycle electrical systems and how they work. He details the various tools, such as multimeters and test lights, that can be used to evaluate and troubleshoot any vehicle's electrical problem. And in several hands-on projects, he takes readers on a guided tour of their vehicle's electrical system, along the way giving clear, step-by-step instructions for diagnosing specific problems.
