Can you not afford an industrial robot to do all your soldering for you? Do you have a need for some great conductivity between your circuit components? Do you like assembling and disassembling electronics? If so, then our soldering workshop is for you!

Join us as learn from soldering master Russ Herrold in this hands-on workshop that will teach you what you need to know to take your soldering skills to the next level. If you have your own soldering iron, bring it. If you have something you would like soldered or desoldered, bring it. If you have electronics totally unassociated with soldering, bring it!

Part of our workshop will be assembling QRP Pixie shortwave radio kits. If you have any interest in amature radio, make sure to come.
