Tinned Traces?

Ok, you got your soldering iron and nothing is going to hold you back, but you have no clue where to start or what to build. There were others before you with the same questions... read them first.

I love how it looks and I tried, but with poor results and a bit poisoned :oops:
Anybody got a nice and/or personal way to do it?

Tkx!

It's a tuturial starting out on how to check pcb traces after etching.

At 3.20 he explains how to use SOLDERWICK to tin the traces before soldering the components. He applies solderflux to the wick, then saturates it with solder and use that to tin the board by apply heat to the solder-drenched wick.

Don't forget to clean the flux off!
