....I always tell my students that my favorite way to get good at
soldering is to make a whole lot of mistakes and melt stuff right
off the bat. It's the fastest way to get over one's fear of fire
and learn it's limits.
Ah. you are my soulmate!
The fun can start early. I’ve been teaching children (ages 6 to 13)
this week and one girl announced right at the beginning that she
personally will be having none of that soldering stuff. She claimed
she burned her hand on a soldering iron a while ago “and it hurt!”.
We did some basic annealing and before long she was announcing that
if anyone needed any annealing done she’d do it for them! I’m sure
if I had this class for another day we’d get into melting and she’d
lead the way!
