Soldering workshop

What are we building ?

Previously (20110623) we discussed this and came to the conclusion that building a one-sided through-hole mount Arduino-compatible Severino would be a good first-time project.

The second option is to build an Arduino-compatible Nanode device -

  • Poboczna, ale potencjalnie istotna uwaga: pojemnik do wytrawiania, ten szklany pionowy, zrobił się nieszczelny, chyba w transporcie. Z jednej strony bok przecieka. Jeśli ma być używany, warto go wcześniej uszczelnić silikonem akwarystycznym.

Where ? When ?

The workshop planned for 2011-07-16 weekend has been *SUSPENDED* due to a much more urgent task - the adaptation of our new (and hopefuly final) space at ITR - itr-adaptacja. The workshop will take place at a future date.

If we don't have a proper space where we can gather and hack we were offered the lab at Pulawska 39, which we can use after 2011-07-11. Our host at Pulawska 39 prefers late evenings on the weekday or weekends.

People interested

During the meeting we calculated that there are approx. 9 people interested so we should have parts for at least 13 kits. Please add yourself to the list if you are interested in building and taking home your first simple Arduino.

Why is this page in English ?

This page is in English because English is better than esperanto ;). Actually, at the meeting we had foreign guests from the Bitcoin consultancy who were also interested in taking part in our workshop.

Needed stuff

Soldering irons

We need one soldering iron per person.

Person How many ? Notes

We need 13 complete sets of parts giving us some spares. q3k had a list of parts needed for one kit, qdot commited to actually order the parts from TME. Obviously we must buy a sheet of plain PCB. We need the surface of the device to calculate how much this we need. Also we will need some etching agent and plastic containers to make the bath. A bottle of solvent is required to wash away the toner after the etching is done.

Person What can you bring ? How much ? Notes
enki Solder 2 rolls
czegoszukasz Solder 1 roll
xirdal Solder 1 roll
jaroslav Solder 1 roll
enki Solder paste 1 box Should be enough for 2-3 people
czegoszukasz Solder paste 1 box
enki Plastic bath 1
enki Etching agent 1 jar Very old, don't know if it's still active


We will need a laser printer (q3k said he has one that works well), a couple of drills/dremels to make holes in the PCB, a small saw (or dremel) and a vice to cut the PCB. It would be good to have some sort of thick carboard or thin wood to protect the tables which we will be working on from damage (drilling, soldering).

Person What can you bring ? How many ? Notes
enki Wooden protect board 1
marcin Protective board + clamps 1
enki Vice 1 In W30
marcin Vice 1
enki Small saw 1
marcin Dremel 1


We will need power 5V power supplies to power the thing. PC ATX, AT or wall-plug regulated power supplies will be OK. Also, we could use some USB↔RS232 converters if the boards will not have FT232 present on them. Multimeters will be needed.

Person What can you bring ? How many ? Notes
enki Multimeter 2 + 1 There should be two at the W30 + my home multimeter
