I think it would be helpful to watch a video of a professional solder and unsolder wires, pins, and components on these new small Arduino, ESP-32, and Seeeduino type MCUs. My projects in the '80s used wire wrap and large soldering pads. I know I need to refresh my technique on not damaging these new little boards.


If your code won't compile, have another glass of bourbon. Eventual the problem will be solved.

Hi jfabernsthy,

soldering is a skill built up with experience under different situations. When I was in high school, (vocational) the first class I had
The teacher had us put nails, maybe 10 down 10 and 10 across on a flat wooden board then we would make a wire grid and practice by soldering the cross wires. My favorite technique was wire wrap with a wire Wrap tool.
I recently pick up two after Bill brought wire wrapping and wire Wrap tool on one of his wonderful videos.

just sharing,
best- Anibal
