A Weller adjustable soldering station. This is the one we have at the lab.

Soldering iron. It's a bit of metal on a handle that gets up to about 700 degrees F and melts solder. You use it to solder circuit boards, namely components on those circuit boards.


Caution! This thing gets really hot. 700F is enough to burn you pretty good, especially if you accidentally drop molten solder onto your leg. Make sure you're careful and use common sense with this tool.

While it's not rocket science, soldering does take some work to get the hang of. Try and take a soldering class, or get started on a 'learn to solder' kit. You'll be much happier you messed up on something that's not important. Believe us.
