Thank you!

I am looking forward to part 2, this must be one of the best episodes on HPR I have heard lately!

Nicely done!

Great Information.

This was definitely a very informative episode and looks to be a very informative series. I used to solder a bit when I needed to repair some gadgets (Apple Airport Basestation is one example), but haven't done it in a very long time. Great amount of information on soldering irons and what to look for. Can't wait to hear more. :-)
