Come on down to the Vancouver Hack Space for the Surface Mount Soldering Night.
We will be soldering a board called “Illuminate This” which is just a board full of white LEDs.
Even if you’ve never done any circuitry or soldering, this is a good kit! Every time we have run this, we have had every level of experience from never touched a soldering iron, to experienced and it was a blast.
Solder one, or solder many. We will teach you how to use solder paste and a solder mask to make the process easy. Once you’ve placed all your components, pop it in our SMD oven and you will walk away with a board containing 80 bright LEDs.
Use these boards to make backlighting, lamps, or whatever you imagine.
The class is free for VHS Members, and only $5 for non-members. Each kit costs $5, you can purchase the night-of. Non-members that sign up that night get a free kit!
No need to sign up, but if you want to indicate your interest here, that would be appreciated. See you then!
