Some soldering steps take place close to pieces of the case. Be very careful where you set your soldering iron so as not to damage the plastic parts! Also watch out for flux spatter.
During the soldering and assembly process, certain parts will become “tethered” together by wires…always pick up and move these parts together, don’t let pieces hang by the wires…this could damage parts or solder joints.
First we’ll be joining the T-Cobbler board and 26-pin socket.
In the next few steps, we’ll be connecting components to the Cobbler according to the following diagram:
Components that are installed in case pieces are now soldered to the Cobbler. Once these are tethered together like this, they can’t be separated. Always pick up and move these parts together as a set. Don’t let pieces hang by the wires.
