5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent way to learn soldering skills or polish up on rusty ones.
Reviewed in the United States on 17 December 2015
I highly recommend this kit for the beginner or for someone wanting to improve rudimentary or rusty soldering skills. I am well experienced at electronic assembly and soldering, and conduct soldering workshops at a nearby science museum. I bought this kit for my 12 year old grandson.

Anyone working with the kit or observing should wear Eye Protection, either glasses or preferably safety goggles. There is danger from flux particles when soldering and especially from flying pieces of wire when trimming components leads or wires. You only have one set of eyes. Don't take chances with them.

The Kit’s Contents - The soldering iron is a nicely made entry to mid-level one, almost alone worth the price of the kit. The stand is a bit flimsy but works. A set of wire cutters is included and the part of the blades closest to the handles serves as an insulation stripper. What's missing is a cleaning sponge. You can use a damp wad of paper towel, but I'd recommend getting a sponge (Weller TC205) or metal tip cleaner (Haako 599B-02). A roll of solid insulated wire, a coil of rosin-core solder, and a piece of de-soldering braid are also provided.

The single-sided printed circuit board is marked well for component placement and the pads are spaced to avoid solder bridges, a common beginner's mistake. The quality of the printed track and pads is low as to thickness and adhesion, so care must be taken not to pull it off if a repair is required. Most of the electrical components are mounted on a card and are clearly identified. The booklet shows how to identify each component, whether on the card or separated.

The Course and Project - The instruction booklet is excellent. It has a section about how soldering works along with useful illustrations to help understand what good and bad solder joints look like. There are separate pads and connections on the board used for practice in the beginning. The steps you are asked to perform are designed to teach you a number of soldering skills, including clean-up and de-soldering using the included braid (wick). The course part provides you a good foundation to move on to the project portion of the board.

The project is straightforward and worked properly the first time after completion by my grandson. The student is asked to make a circuit change exercising de-soldering skills after first testing the project. A theory of operation, schematic diagram, and a brief quiz about soldering and the project rounds out the booklet.

I recommend this kit as a complete soldering course for the beginner or for someone wanting to improve rudimentary or rusty soldering skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars The AmeriKit AK-100 should be your first experience with soldering.
Reviewed in the United States on 17 February 2020
The AmeriKit AK-100 should be your first experience with soldering. It teaches you by repeating exercises over and over until you get a solid foundation on how to use the tools in the kit. The practice will allow you to build your first electronic circuit. The value this project provides is fantastic.

Search the model and my name on YouTube for a full, in-depth presentation.

Features I like about this kit:
Provides extensive training exercises to help the student become comfortable using a soldering iron.
A manual that is done in a clear, textbook learning format.
All components are nicely labeled.
Includes a quality 25watt soldering iron.
Includes a pair of small cutters.
An enjoyable circuit to build once you have mastered the basics.
De-solder braid included.
Component removal is taught with this kit.
Inexpensive.

Features that could be added or improved on:
Flux paste. This will help with lead-free solder use.
Include a 9V battery.

Overall, if you finish this kit, and all of your exercises were done correctly, you are ready to build or repair a radio! This kit should be your first. The price and the amount of knowledge learned here will go very far when it comes to building other circuits. The soldering iron and cutters will help you in the future as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good kit...but get a better iron
Reviewed in the United States on 20 January 2015
It could be just me, but I thought the iron was really terrible. It just so happens to wanted to buy both a last-for-20-years "soldering station" with super-high-quality iron...and a how-to-solder-kit. Getting this kit at least allowed me to practice and screw up the pathetic little 25 watt iron that came with it. And screw it up I did.

I'm assuming all or nearly all of my problems stemmed directly from my own actions but even when I first started it seemed like the iron wasn't quite acting how it was described in the booklet.

And the booklet, though well written and sufficient in the basics, is merely mediocre in the area of useful techniques. And the lead-free solder provided makes soldering unnecessarily difficult (as I found out).

For a REAL walk through of proper soldering techniques search youtube for the EEVBlog soldering tutorial: three parts (of 30+ minutes each) going to exacting detail on EXACTLY what to do and what NOT to do. EEVBlog guy actually contradicts the pamphlet with the kit in some instances on techniques and details (like tinning).

For the part where I screwed up the 25 watt iron, I realized at some point as a dragged the iron back forth across me I would inadvertently and without realization touch the iron to the power cord insulation (I'm right handed and power strip was on my left, it was kind of an awkward setup that I have since rectified). So in short order the iron tip was completely ruined in-so-far as it was coated with that rubber that makes up insulation. Hardly the fault of Elenco (although they never specifically said "don't touch the iron to the power cord". That was a joke.)

Possibly in some small part due to my ruined soldering iron I also burned through the board a few times but I just kept going. Supposed to be practicing after all. When I was done soldering all the parts, carefully making sure each was in the right place, I wasn't going to even bother hooking it up because I assume I had ruined it. But to my surprise...it worked!

Then I decided to "enhance" it a little: since I had an old power switch from a PC chassis circa 1993 or so (on-off like a light switch, not a momentary) I chopped up the wires going between the battery snap and the board and put the switch in between. And now I have a blinky-LED euro-siren that I can turn on and off any time I want...and leave the battery connected (I know, uber-leet mod right?).

I think I can recommend this kit. I would still recommend buying a higher-quality iron and make sure to BE PATIENT. And don't touch the iron to the power cord...
