Hello peeps. I know I am going to be busy with the day job this week so this is scheduled and the photo was taken earlier this week.
So What's on MY Workdesk? Well, I have decided to have another go at some soldering (hence the blog post title!).
I am trying to make a kitchen timer!
This is it out of its housing. It doesn't work properly as all the LED's don't light up and the alarm goes off only on some! I know a few engineers so put it out on facebook and they have come back with some good suggestions about testing the LED's-but to be honest I think the answer is probably that I may have been a bit heavy handed and burnt them out. The soldering iron used to be my dad's and I don't think the tip gets that hot so I was melting the solder with the side and it all got a bit hot!!
Nevermind, it's all an experiment and can only go to enhance my craft skills!!
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Burns Nurse Blasts Girl' or even 'Blasts Girl Burns Nurse!'
Anyhoo, if you fancy a legal snoop at desks across the globe then pop over to the lovely Julias blog
