These tools are needed for both LED Scope Part 1 & Part 2. Recommended for kits that require soldering.

(From center, then top, clock-wise)
25W Pencil-Tip soldering Iron
Provides just the right amount of heat for soldering electronic components. Wattages over 30 watts can damage the components and PC board. Wattages under 20 watts will not heat quickly enough and component damage may occur.
Cage-Type Soldering Iron Stand
Highly recommended to prevent burns to table tops, test leads and people.
Safety Glasses
Always protect you Eyes when working with tools!
Basic Digital Multi Meter with Test Leads
Measures DC/AC Voltage, Current, Resistance, test Diodes and Transistors
Long, Narrow Tweezers
For positioning small parts and prying under components
De-Soldering Pump
Vacuum-Pump to remove melted solder to aid in dismantling circuits
60/40 Tin/Lead Rosin Core Solder Wire (0.025” Dia.)
Low temperature lead-based solder flows freely and makes learning easier. Without experience, lead-free tin-only solders make poor solder joints and cause discouragement.
Universal Wire Strippers & Cutters
For removing insulation and cutting heavy gauge wire.
De-Soldering Braid
Removes solder from tiny spaces the way paper towel absorbs water.
Needle-Nose Pliers
Holding parts while soldering or un-soldering, bending & shaping component leads.
Fine, Flush Wire Cutters
Use to trim component leads after soldering. Cuts flush and in tight spaces. Used ONLY to cut fine copper wire and component leads!!

We believe we have the highest quality kits in the “kit” industry (read our testimonials). Unlike most electronic kits, all our kits include a schematic, detailed printed instructions, and teaching material explaining the why and how things work. Our Hands-on Electronics Courses (LED Scope) take students from no knowledge into the college level and prepares them for a basic Electronics Technician job or Technical Career. Our hands-on kits and courses are self-instructional (homeschool moms do not need to learn electronics), but can be used individually, in classrooms,  or homeschool co-ops.

(Our items were manufactured prior to August 31st, 2018)

As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the “Prop 65” law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals that can cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive problem.

As an example:
   ABS Plastic contains styrene
   PVC wire insulation can contain Ki(2-ethythexl)phthalate (DEHP)
   electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethlene glycol
   Brass can contain Lead
   Flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
   Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium

To put it simply, we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink, or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
