Turn a peltier ‘USB soda can cooler’ into a solder paste fridge. Takes only 5 minutes!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Why does solder paste need to be refrigerated?

  2. cuz it says so on the box 🙂
    it goes bad, it seems like perhaps it separates. old paste is sticky and hard to work with. It doesnt reflow as well and seems to ball up more.

  3. It costs a lot too. Why waste it? I usually keep mine in the fridge next to the eggs. It actually tastes pretty good in an omelet. Doctors say it’s good when you need you neck to flop over.
