This assortment of tools has everything you need to get started tinkering with Sparkfun products and beyond! The kit specifically caters to those of you who are new to soldering. We’ve found our favorite, low-cost and easy to transport tools, and created a kit that we would give to our local hacker friends. While these tools might not be enough for more difficult, surface-mount type assembly, they should be just what you need for through-hole soldering.
In this version of the kit, we’ve added a silicone soldering mat, a 2oz liquid bottle, and some upgraded wire strippers. Go hack something!
