Recommend Tools for Soldering Header Pins

by philip2100 on Wed Jan 02, 2019 4:26 pm

I am new to soldering and find myself with the task of soldering header pins to my Pyboard. The microcontroller board is tiny, and possibly heat-sensitive. I wish to get the right tools for the job (and for other soldering projects later on, of course). I have read that I want to have a precise little joint for each pin. Is there a kit which would include the tools I'll need and let me practice and make mistakes first before I work on the actual board? To get some items separately? Or what is recommended?

I have:

MicroPython pyboard - v1.1
PRODUCT ID: 2390

Set of Header Pins for MicroPython pyboard
PRODUCT ID: 3499

MicroPython pyboard Anodized Housing with Open Lid
PRODUCT ID: 3496

Thank you,

Philip

If you can, set the temperature of your iron at 600 to 650 F, too hot an iron can be quite frustrating when working in close.
