"My 10 years of soldering experience basically come down to these 6-something minutes."
"In 6 minutes you gave this novice everything I need to know about taking on a basic soldering project. Clean explanations, clearly articulated, supported with great video clips and images. Well done!" - Jerry Nordstrom
"Great job - well researched and executed with lots of attention to the all-important details. The audio is very clear, as are the video close-up shots. I have many years of soldering experience - but I still learned something new!" - MrDexterToYou
