Solder & Wire Class

The ability to solder correctly is one of the major skills that anyone in model railroading needs to acquire if a layout's electrical integrity is to be assured.

Larry McCarthy held a very informative instructional class last night, April 9th, 2014.  Larry covered the many aspects of proper and effective techniques required for solid and electrically sound solder joints.  He described the importance of correctly tinning the iron's tip, the use of flux, how to avoid cold joints, how and where and why to solder wire to track sections and much more.  Thank you Larry!

In attendance with Larry McCarthy were Bill Smet, Dean Writer, Larry Greenley (who provided the photos), Wesley Phillips and Bill Flanagan.
