DIY Girls Message Board › LED Necklace

LED Necklace

A former member
Post #: 1
Hi girls,

I make basic necklaces and want to start adding LEDs on them because lights make everything better! I've made a basic LED, resistor, battery project but I don't think that's going to cut it this time. Therefore, I'm looking to get a soldering iron and am curious what's the best for a basic project.. I've looked and there are so many and they range from$5+. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Hi! I just noticed this.

I've used a low-end Weller soldering iron and it works fine for hobby type projects. It's a Weller WLC100 and runs from $35-50 depending where you buy it.

I have and use the Hakko 936 station for many DIY projects and many hobbyists agree that it's one of the best: http://boingboing.net...­

Not in stock in Amazon but usually you can find it at a Fry's Electronics store. It is a about $80 but it's really worth it for the quality if you intend to use it a lot.
