Building is better than buying, even if it’s kits

As I get my soldering skills back(*), I’ve been doing kits for little things that I can give people. Every so often, I like to make LED Menorahs (kits available everywhere, but I like to buy from Evil Mad Science when I can).

(*) I had been trying to solder at 220 Celsius and ruining everything. After some research I moved it up to 350 Celsius and I’m back in business. (If this sounds unusually high, or you know something better, please ping me. But I found that most people recommend soldering in the high 200s and then adding 50 degrees for lead free solder.)
