The KISS102 Selective Solder machine is an essential component of Adafruit’s machine line, and one that requires consistent attention. The KISS102 contains a pot of molten solder which must be regularly cleaned. In the video you can see “dross”, a layer of scum formed from oxides and other debris, being scraped off the surface of the pool of molten solder. We clean this machine before and after every use to make sure it’s always in top notch soldering condition.
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.
