This workshop will use pick soldering and teach a new soldering technique called chip soldering. You'll learn about flux, oxidation, pickle, and more. You'll learn how the metal behaves as it's heating to the correct temperature to accept the solder, how the flux behaves, and what the metal looks like just before the melting point.
