How old is your soldering iron? Has it been sitting around, gathering dust after years of not being used? Or is it much, much older? Soldering also known as brazing has been a part of our history for thousands of years. This technology, fixing two pieces of metal together, has shaped our civilization for eons. Humans in the Bronze Age made crude weapons using this, ancient Egyptians even recorded the use of a primitive welding as long ago as 3000 B. C. Even today, this technology still shapes our society in significant ways.
How many items that we own have been manufactured using precision soldering techniques? Our phones, computers, medical devices, cars, even our houses themselves are full of advanced, modern uses of this ancient technology. But do many of us know how to use it? If these items break, can we fix them? Ever wonder if you could dust off the old iron and use it yourself? Want to become a part of this age-old industry that is continually evolving?
