    @1116marko – we sell just about everything in the video.

  2. 1116marko says:

    do you sell all these items???? TY

  3. TubeDepotTV says:

    @biggerbigd – glad we can help. Keep up the great soldering and let us know if there is anything we can help you with.

  4. TubeDepotTV says:

    @ACLTony – glad we can be of assistance. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.

  5. biggerbigd says:

    Video was a great help. Thanks.

  6. ACLTony says:

    Excellent tutorial. Clear speaking and good closeups with the camera.

  7. TubeDepotTV says:

    @Lordskeep – He, he he … you should watch our Better Instrument Cable video … it’s really tight.

  8. TubeDepotTV says:

    @saimasters – thanks … hopefully we have given some good hints for soldering

  9. Lordskeep says:

    With all that probing I expected to see some solder juice.

  10. saimasters says:

    Thanks. Cool video.

  11. Maximinators says:

    @jmnthe3rd Yeah,… you are right! Look at Bill Gates…

  12. TubeDepotTV says:

    @llama464 – We took so many takes that both myself and the camera guy forgot when the glasses were on and when they weren’t. For the most part, when I was actually soldering, I was wearing glasses … which is the important thing. Eyes are difficult to replace.

  13. llama464 says:

    The best part about this video is that hes not wearing his safety glasses that he told us to wear…

  14. Bvzijverden says:

    Just got à solder kit and there was flux in it and i didn’t know what it was but I tried it out, it word amazing my joints are mucho stronger now 😀

  15. TubeDepotTV says:

    @jmnthe3rd – oh my gosh, you are so right. During the summer the haircuts are better since we usually just cut it short. But in the fall and winter, we leave it longer for its thermal insulation properties only have our hair look like a bad weave. Hopefully everyone else has better hair luck than me.

  16. jmnthe3rd says:

    The best engineers always have the worst haircuts.

  17. TubeDepotTV says:

    @MrJANTJE123 – uhhh … it is supposed to be 60% tin / 40% lead. I get all nervous when I’m on camera. Good catch …

  18. MrJANTJE123 says:

    wow wait its 60 tin and 40 lead! or not?

  19. TubeDepotTV says:

    @lowIQ04 – good catch … although, during all the evolutions where I was actually soldering, I believe I had them on. I’ll have to go back and look again.

  20. lowIQ04 says:

    “always use saftey goggles” you dint wear it lol

  21. TubeDepotTV says:

    @jesusfreakster101 – The flux use got cut from the final video. It is very important as you will find it in the core of all good quality lead based 60/40 electronics solder. The purpose of flux is to dissolve the oxides and contaminants from the surface of the metals during the soldering process. This way the solder will better bond to the base metals. I use liquid solder when the base metals are particularly dirty. It doesn’t take much, but it is important.

  22. jesusfreakster101 says:

    What the FLUX Bro???!!!! At what point is the flux used? I assume you put it on the part (like that transistor) when it is hooked around the pin, with heat. After it boils off, then I guess you would go on with the solder.
    I love your videos btw!! I think in the long run flux must not really be that important!
    God Bless

  23. TubeDepotTV says:

    @joeldadrummer – I think the flux demonstration ended up on the cutting room floor. Flux is a heat activated acid that boils off base metal oxides to improve the bond between the solder and the base metals. Most electronic grade solders have flux built into the solder (rosin flux core) therefore adding more flux usually isn’t necessary. However, if the base metals are heavily oxidized, the application of additional flux will improve the flow of solder to these metals.

  24. joeldadrummer says:

    Great informative video. But you talked about the importance of flux and then never used it. I’m new to soldering. Where does the flux go and when do you use it? thanks

  25. TubeDepotTV says:

    @tybaltordie – I’m glad you liked the video. Long term exposure to solder fumes should be avioded as best as possible. A small fan along with adaquate ventilation should be sufficient.

    @fastguy45 you be the messia

  28. MrBlandandboring says:

    sorry but there are about 2 safety tips in there, not what I would call a in depth saftey video on proper use of the soldering iron.

  29. punchy001 says:

    @fastguy45 thanks bro 🙂

    whats with the fukin ads? hate that shit.

  35. suprmacdaddy says:

    @jokerlikeskating lol

  36. airsoftguy85rocks says:

    use lead-free solder LOL

  37. FromThe3PointLine says:

    @jokerlikeskating lol you dont get lead poisining

  38. jokerlikeskating says:

    how can i prevent lead poisoning

  39. AN1ONI2MO3 says:

    thanks for the advise
