Project 1 – Soldering wires together.
Project 2 – Through-hole Soldering
Step 2: Insert LED all the way through. Positive leg to the left. Step 3: Bend legs out 45 dergrees. Step 4: Solder Step 5: Insert resistor and bend legs out. Step 6: Solder the resistor in place through both of its holes. THEN add some solder to connect the right LED leg to the left resistor leg (the middle two wires). Step 7: Snip off the two inner leads and test with a 9V battery. Remember which end is positive (+). Works with a Coin cell battery too. Just dimmer.
