Re: Kai's TF534 Build

Been using some flux but will have to invest in some more, might have to get another spool of leaded solder from farnell. I should be able to go over the top of the existing joints with fresh stuff, right?

Re: Kai's TF534 Build

Okay - so i went and bought a better soldering station, and a set of tips (including a K-Tip as per recommendation.

Re: Kai's TF534 Build

Supposedly, the solder is 63/37 leaded - but its from china so...no idea if it actually is. The iron i initially tried was a 48w s...

Re: Total Newbie Thread

Heyo! Going to be building a TF530 and a TF534 in the coming days, sourced almost all the components from digikey and mouser, although i'm coming a bit unstuck with the Jumper and IDE headers - I ordered one header for the IDE, but it was the wrong size, right amount of pins though! Could someone p...
