Some soldering absurdity...

I also like to warm up my screwdriver before I work, it helps get the screws out faster!  :-DD

You are joking, but in some situation, heating a screws can help to remove it, especially if it was rusty

I did not think of that - have never done it. I suppose you would want to heat a rusty screw directly though, rather than heating the screwdriver first.

Heating a screwdriver is a good way to remove screws that have been painted over.  Not sure that happens much with electronics, but it's handy when you're doing a bit of work around the house or garden. :-)

You'd think Mythbusters would know better. but no.
They still have a shot in the intro sequence of someone trying to solder a high density BGA style pcb with a horrible iron and making an awful mess



whats with the short between pin 4 and 7 ?

That is also a Right Handed screw driver she is holding in her left hand.

What? I'm lefty and it's a pain in the ass with some stuff. I need to get used to a world against me!

Are there lefty screwdrivers?


Anyway, I found the joke...

That's what the Torque Wrench is for.

And the Sharpie is to redraw the readout on the O-Scope.  :-DD

I thought he did that on purpose in reference to the batteriser.

i think it might be dangerous to measure a high voltage disposable camera capacitor charger circuit when the DMM is switched to the resistance range...
At least this one is actually testing the resistor with it on the resistance setting.

Amazing, Simply Amazing.

Long Long ago there use to be a television show called Hawaii 50, the main character had a habit of talking into the back of the microphone in his police vehicle. I use to get a good laugh out of that.

Hawaii Five-0. I remember one episode where they are doing to match a finger print to a suspect... the detective used a standalone 029 card punch machine, a card was punched and... voila! they got their suspect. Whenever an American show features random beeps as data is appearing on a monitor, or there is a WHOOSH sound as a spaceship is passing, it's time to walk out of the cinema and ask for your money back.

BTW have you saw that each hot air gun they use are the Atten 858D+ ? (or a clone of it ^^)
When you make hardware without taking into account the needs of the eventual software developers, you end up with bloated hardware full of pointless excess. From the outset one must consider design from both a hardware and software perspective.

In the Weird Al video "White and Nerdy", Al has a soldering gun, with a handle...



That always bothered me. Would be really hard to use.

I just showed some of these fails to my missus, who is a student of graphic design.  I told her to let her class know to consult someone technical should they do 'technical' 'drawings'.  She tells me most of the population wouldn't pick the fails.  That's probably how they get away with it.
Hiding from the missus, she doesn't understand.

You can let it stop bothering you now:

Perhaps if we were taught to write with pistol-grip pencils, we would find the other style is difficult?   :D

I have no clue why the readings are off.





I really like this new solder wire dispenser, but these new lead free solder compounds takes ages to melt:

It says "Relative Humidity" on the screen, so it's relative to some other reading that they made in a Sauna, Green house or somewhere else with higher humidity.

Relative humidity is a standard measurement, it doesn't go negative

Yeah it's the amount of water vapour in the air relative to the maximum amount at that temperature so it can't be negative. This is in contrast to absolute humidity which is simply the amount of water vapour in the air.

Another classic fail that people who worked in commerical two way radio always laughed about was on the television series The Highway Patrol. The series was based on the California Highway Patrol back in the late 1950s. The main character would open his trunk to get something out, usually flaires or a shotgun.  In the trunk there was no T/R package for the radio he used.

This was long before dash mount radios, the box in the trunk should have been about 3 cubic feet, and should have been accompanied by the sound of a Dynamotor, since this was before transistors that could handle DC to DC converter service. (they didn't have large enough vibrators back then to handle the 35-40 amps those two way radios drew.

An old friend did police and fire equipment installations back in the fifties and they had to find a way to fit a second generator and a second battery.

Television is rife with all kinds of electronic fails.....
