Soldering is the way in which two pieces of metals are bonded together. This brings us to what is a soldering iron , this is where by iron is used to bind those two metals together. It happens when the rod is melted well then put where the two metals are to be bonded. This process is so similar to that of welding the only differences is that when you weld the two metals are fused and melted together to form one object. Here is how the soldering iron it is used
First step one needs to prepare a work area and lay a piece of carton that will hold the drip of the iron when it melts. Then after doing that warm the soldering iron , if by chance the soldering iron is the electric one then it will need to warm up for a while on it’s stand. If it runs on butane , fill it with gas and that makes the gas flow from the nozzle and fill the tank . After all that clean your soldering iron this is because when the soldering iron is very hot it easily oxidizes and thus becomes dirty . One cleans the soldering iron by using a wet sponge and pass it through the tip until it shines and ready for use.
Next you apply flux this thing called the flux helps to remove the oxides and gives you an easy solder. The flux also has its own precautions , it requires to melt at a good temperature but lower than the solder’s temperature. Then afterwards tin your solder , to tin the solder is to add a coating. No matter what happens as you are soldering you thing don not even dare touch the tip of the soldering iron . After all this now one can start soldering his or her metals . Take the soldering iron on one hand like biro then the solder on the other . then place the tip on the soldering iron ,
Tip is required to touch both the wire and the and surface to have the same temperature .then place the solder to the joint after it is heated well . a molten substance that you will have to let it flow in order to cover the connection gets covered . then after that you remove the solder then you also remove the iron. Lastly evaluate it ,make sure it looks ok and the two metals have been bonded an has formed mountain like impression. And clear your surface afterwards .
