    I get to know from past 6 months of looking home electronics,that most
    of them failed b/c of solder fault.
    I never done soldering by hand,although done SMT Inspection jobs,now I
    know importance of soldering quality in electronics.
    I need to start hand soldering to get repair all my household
    electronics,any idea where and which machine I will purchase for this
    purpose?
    Thanks

    Thaqalain:
    If you have questions like this.... try using the google search
    engine.... type in "weller soldering iron" and click search. In less
    than a few seconds you will have hundreds or thousands of good hits
    regarding the places you can purchase a "hand soldering tool",
    otherwise known as a soldering iron.
    A small 25 watt, no frills iron will do the job for handyman, do it
    yourself, home soldering. As you tackle more elaborate soldering
    tasks then maybe a temperature controlled soldering station might be of
    interest, but definately overkill for most do-it-yourself home repair
    projects.

    As Electricitym suggested, you can research soldering iron or soldering
    tool on the web. Some companies that sell such supplies may have tutorial
    information at their web sites.

    A couple of points you should consider:

    1. Take care that you do NOT use acid-core solder or acid flux. It is
    corrosive and will ruin electronic equipment.

    2. There is a trend away from using solder containing lead because of its
    poisonous effects on the environment. There is another reason not to use
    it on modern electronic circuits with surface-mount components. Lead
    amalgamates with silver in these components, causing them to become an
    open circuit.

    During your research, look for information on lead-free solder.
