If you already saw the soldering video, here two photos of the result.

To get this result, I was inspired by the way Saar from Boldport was soldering his own projects, I adapted his technique.

  • After initial soldering, I flush cut carefully the wire as close as possible to the board. Cutting off any solder with the wire to make it flat.
  • Next I add more solder to the point  until it forms a small round dome.
  • On the component side I add solder if necessary to fill the hole and make a smooth transition from the hole to the wire.

For this photos I use solder with lead – this is a huge exception. It is the only way to get this shiny domes. Normally I work with lead free components and solder according to ROHS.
