Howard Electronic Instruments Drag Soldering Video Clip

How to drag solder a surface mount IC with the JBC AD2950Soldering Station, 2245 50 watt hand piece and the 2245-031 drag solder tip.

This video will show you how to solder a sterling silver jump ring to a sterling silver bezel cup to be used as a very simple bail. This easy project will show you the importance of fitting parts together.

    @sonofsam717 And just to make it clear, additional flux in only required when the solder is added to the tip of the iron first. If the solder is added directly to the heated joint, then the flux in the solder’s core is enough. Though in some situations additional flux can still help, such as when soldering through-hole components on multi-layer boards, the flux core in the solder sometimes isn’t quite enough to get the proper solder flow to the opposite side of the board.

    @TehMG
    OK thanks for answering my question and then some. I suck @ soldering but I’ve been practicing and getting better. I have an aptitude for this kind of stuff but have never been in a position where I needed to solder. So I never did. But I’ll get good @ it. Thanks again.

    @sonofsam717 Yes, additional flux is necessary. The flux within the solder burns off once you add the solder to the cup tip. By the time you start soldering, the flux that was in the core of the solder is all spent and no good anymore.

    If you give it a try, you’ll notice that without additional flux you won’t get proper wetting, the solder will tend to remain on the tip rather than flow to the pins, and form solder bridges very easily.

    The additional flux causes the solder to flow with ease.

    Do I need to use flux if I’m using rosin core solder?

  5. GMELECTRONICS365 says:

    Of course its flux.

    Is that gluey stuff flux?

    More Good!

    Flux

  9. Penfold8 says:

    Beautiful!

  10. ehackster says:

    it’s rosin flux

  11. balamithraselvan says:

    whats the material you ve applied at first
    the one which looked like glue
    could you please tell abt that

    Now thats how your drag solder! I seen too many videos where every single pin is soldered by pushing solder from the pad to the pin. A very long process. And I am like ” WHY DON’T YOU JUST DRAG SOLDER!!” They might as well go back to .1 inch pitch through-hole components if they want to be slow and not advance.

    Great video.
