A new year approaches, and with it a new round of conventions to talk about electronics in cosplay. No matter the allotted time, it’s always a crunch, so anything that fits on a handout for later is a boon.
Just as sewing is a core skill of costuming, soldering is vital to electronics…yet the tools rarely include instructions. There are some excellent tutorials and videos, but I wanted to distill the basics to something one could absorb in 30 seconds. I focused on the two main mistakes novices make: heating the solder instead of the parts, and trying to learn on a discount store iron or granddad’s hand-me-down WWII-era elephant gun.
The new soldering card joins our collection on Github. These are all Creative Commons — download, remix, print and share them for your own classes or reference! PDF format, sized for Overnight Prints’ standard business card template.
