Getting Started on Soldering –
OK, I am sick of being on here and being part of the scene, knowing a shitload about computers and the Playstation 2 itself, yet knowing nothing about soldering. I am going to sell my v7 soon for a new SCPH-50001 when it hits stores in the Midwest, and as soon as a DMS3 modchip supports them, I want to solder my own frickin modchip into my ps2. What do I things do you guys recommend for soldering supplies (wattage of the iron, type of solder, desoldering braid of any kind, multimeters, magnifying glasses, etc) and what things should I practice on before opening my ps2 and doing the damn thing myself? How did you guys get started? Thanks, I will be out of town starting Monday, but I will check any posts before then and be back around Friday also. Thanks!
