 +==== Soldering ====
 +
 +//Soldering is a process in which two or more metal items are joined together by melting and flowing a filler metal into the joint, the filler metal having a relatively low melting point.//
 +(from wikipedia, http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Soldering)
 +
 +**Important:​
 +**
 +  *Heat up properly all the parts you want to join. Larger parts take longer.
 +  *The solder flows toward the hottest point. Iron on one side, solder on the opposite. ​
 +  *Do not preload the iron tip with solder and try to apply it to the parts. It won't work and/or will produce an unreliable joint.
