Now it was finally time to solder. I was nervous to burn myself or my peers, but I knew one thing and one thing only… I had to be very careful. It could get up to 842 degrees!!!! Mr. Calvert went on a 15 minute rant about how to use the solder and he told us the horrendous stories of people getting burned. Keep in mind when he says burned he doesn’t mean a glue gun burn. He means a third degree burn. Everyone gasped at the idea of getting burned this severely. Now everyone was petrified and terrified that they would be the next victim. When it was my turn it to go my hand was shaky. I put the iron on the wire for 4 seconds and then put the solder on it. It worked! Success!!
