Safety Tips with Soldering Iron -
Soldering Iron can be very dangerous if the proper safety precautions are not taken. When
in use, the tip of a soldering iron will exceed 700 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature - more
than enough heat to seriously injure somebody or inflict damage on property and
surroundings. Here are some soldering safety tips to keep in mind at all times:
● Never set your Soldering Iron down on anything other than a specially made iron
stand! This could damage your iron as well as the surface you're setting it down one.
● Replace your iron immediately if the electrical cord becomes frayed, worn or otherwise
● Take care to wear heat-resistance gloves or use needle nose pliers to grip objects that
you're soldering, particularly small pieces. This will help you avoid accidentally touching
the tip of the iron with your fingers and sustaining a potentially serious - and very painful
● Don't leave your iron plugged in after you're finished using it, and never leave a hot iron
● Always wash your hands after you finish using your Soldering Iron. One of the
components of solder is lead, which can be toxic if ingested or absorbed into the skin.
