Digital Multimeter Kit (Model M-1007K - Electronic Experiment Kit - Requires Soldering) (Soldering/ Soldering)
by Elenco Electronics
The most important factor in assembling your M-1007K Digital Multimeter Kit is good soldering techniques. Using the proper soldering iron is of prime importance. A small pencil type soldering iron of 25 - 40 watts is recommended. The tip of the iron must be kept clean at all times and well tinned.

A Note About the Solder:
For many years leaded solder was the most common type of solder used by the electronics industry, but it is now being replaced by lead-free solder for health reasons. This kit contains lead-free solder, which contains 99.3% tin, 0.7% copper, and has a rosin-flux core.
Lead-free solder is different from lead solder: It has a higher melting point (about 440OF, compared to about 360OF for lead solder), so you need higher temperature for the solder to flow properly. Recommended tip temperature is 700OF-800OF; higher temperatures improve solder flow but accelerate tip decay. An increase in soldering time may be required to achieve good results. Soldering iron tips wear out faster since lead-free solders are more corrosive and the higher soldering temperatures accelerate corrosion, so proper tip care is important. The solder joint finish will look slightly duller with lead-free solders.
