Soldering Techniques for Airsoft

Recommended Posts

Glad to hear I was able to help! Now that you've got your soldering down... that mosfet should be pretty easy to install.

 

hopefully :) ive never opened my AEG before.... :)

Thanks Infected for this video. As others have mentioned too my soldering skills also sucked big time and your video helped ALOT when I rewired my m14 and installed a mosfet from you (BTW thanks again for assistance with that too). Your stuff is top notch.

That was probably me running the tip of the soldering iron across a damp sponge to clean the tip and take excessive flux or solder off it. The "spray" sound is the sizzle of the water in the sponge.

coming from the rc world, another thing i do when soldering deans plugs; is i plug the two connectors together (male/ female plugs) to keep the tabs from melting and moving, so they will still line up after its all said and done!

Strip and clean both wire ends.

 

Slightly flatten both ends (so they are a kind of V shape

 

Apply flux to both ends, and then tin*.. both ends

 

Hold the tinned ends together, then heat with iron. You will see all the solder melt around the same time (as it conducts heat very well..) Once it has melted, take off the iron, and hold the wires until the solder has solidified again.

 

Test the strength of the connection, you shouldn't be able to pull it apart by hand.. if it strong enough heat shrink it and your done.

 

 

*tin = 'cover' both ends in solder by heating the wires and allowing solder to flow over them.
