Soldering. Video lesson. Part 1 (for beginners)

Created here an infernal installation for macro video. Because for macro shots with my camera I had to poke almost a lens into the board, which in the first case doesn’t allow me to creep in with the same soldering iron, and in the second, it’s possible to dirtied the delicate optics with splashes of solder and flux.
I had to invent :) As a result, he shortened the lens from the plateau of the holder - it allowed me to keep the camera down farthest from the board, and I screwed this whole thing with the details from the same plate holder to the TV bracket.
The bracket itself was not fixed to the wall, but bolted to the table, it turned out to be a very convenient design (photo will open in a new window)
A small fan was hung on the side to blow off smoke.
But he forgot to limit his power, so he blew so that my solder instantly cooled, I had to tighten the power.

Well, you can watch the result of the whole action below:

Soldering Planar SMD Resistors

Soldering planar ICs in a SOIC package

We still need to think about lighting the working area. I think the local LED backlighting can be done and then it will be finally good. But already this, IMHO, is not bad. What do you think?
