Hi - Just trying to find out if there is an interest in an SMD (surface mounted diode) soldering workshop. I’d like to put one on for VHS members.
This is soldering components on top of the board - like what you’d see on an arduino or computer motherboard.
This is very handy to know for project building (especially for slim, low profile projects) as well as repair for phones/computers and other electronics. Already knowing how to solder is a requirement.
It’s fine work, using tweezers to pick up the components but it’s very satisfying and can be pretty zen.
Reply below if this is something you’d be interested in.
If there is interest we’ll do a workshop.
We’d make the following, or something similar, in a night. So you’d have a completed project after the workshop.
