    Copper is a material that is easy to solder.
    What is the problem statement ? ? ?
    What does PTH stand for ? ? ?
    What is am Artemis option ???
    Your audience can not read your mind.

    I'm with Doozer on this. It's like the poster is talking in tongues or I'm at a meeting where the presenter is throwing out multiple acronyms that i've never seen. Ncowan, Welcome Aboard. But don't assume that everyone knows this stuff.

    Is it just Doozer and I? Do the rest of you know what all that stuff is? Or are you just throwing out solutions based on the one keyword of "soldering"?

      I understood all but the Artemis thing. PCB is printed circuit board. PTH is referring to through-hole board mounting componentry, and SMT is referring to surface mount componentry. Sparkfun is an electronics retailer.

        personally it scored a double bullseye in could care less dart board of life. If a poster is not able to make himself understood, or I'm too dumb to get it, just doesn't matter. next.

          While I am not calling for such measures here, this thread does show the reason why another infamous machining board has more strict enforcement of a meaningful title rule.

          Actually this thread clearly shows the need for both meaningful titles and for PLAINLY stating your question in the first post. We still really do not know what the OP was asking about. The use of the words "Artemis option" is but one example of language that is so obtuse that no one can really understand the overall meaning. I tried looking up that term and the internet provided absolutely nothing to clarify her/his meaning. Worse than trying to understand a poem written 300 years ago in the English of that day.

          And if you look REAL close at an analog signal,
          You will find that it has discrete steps.

            The Artemis is a stem programme dreamt up by nasa to encourage tech and art crossovers from what I’m getting, that’s all I got

              Paul is right on temperature vs watts. I just finished soldering 3 50 pin connectors for Yaskawa servo drives using a 40 watt iron. Two seconds to solder a pin without heat damage to the plastic connector. I’ve seen way more bad joints and damage from too small an iron than too big.

                Maybe something to do with this?? I watch too much of the science channel JR

                "Artemis is an ongoing space mission run by NASA with the goal of landing the first female astronaut and next male astronaut on the Moon's South Pole by 2024. It is the US space agency's first crewed Moon mission since Apollo 17 in 1972."

                Apollo was one so they figured they needed to make the new mission more female friendly, go figure... JR

                  Please try to be a little kinder to the OP. It's their first post, and their native language may not be English. The acronyms used are well known to anyone with even a basic understanding and experience with electronics and soldering, and those who do not know what they mean, IMHO, should hold their tongue (or keyboard fingers)

                  We should (again, IMHO), welcome questions of interest to many on this forum, who also have electronics expertise. Machining now entails a fair amount of electrical, electronic, and software, for CNC, motor control, VFDs, and RPCs. Most of us here probably know those acronyms, but it is quite likely that the OP may not. And, as we are not beholden to him to explain what they are (on a machinist board), he should not be required to do so when asking an electronics related question. And it is a lot faster, easier, and more self-educational, to just do a web search for the meaning, instead of complaining.

                    So ...?

                    "Artemis is a stem programme dreamt up by nasa..." I never heard of it.

                    This is what I got, top of the list in my search, "Artemis, in Greek religion, the goddess of wild animals, the hunt, and vegetation and of chastity and childbirth; she was identified by the Romans with Diana. Artemis was the daughter of Zeus and Leto and the twin sister of Apollo. Among the rural populace, Artemis was the favourite goddess."

                    I still do not get her/his POINT. What meaning should be assigned to it?

                    Tech and art crossovers? How does that apply to soldering an electronic project? Should we be making images in the solder joints? Is he going to make some kind of sculpture by soldering? ... by soldering electronic parts? ... by soldering electronic parts on a PCB?

                    I mean, REALLY? WHAT is this all about?

                    Perhaps it is beyond me.

                    PS: All spelling errors in this post have been faithfully copied from the original material that I am quoting.
