Soldering Wednesday Open Event

Soldering Wednesday is the perfect open event if you don't have a project - drop by, pick up a kit, and make something cool with our members at your side.

No obligation to buy a kit - bring your own project and hack with the MakerBar community.

  • XProtolab - An entire electronics bench on a circuit smaller than most erasers. Snaps into a breadboard and features a dual-channel oscilloscope, logic analyzer, FFT, voltmeter...

    My apologies, I had to cancel. My schedule just got too busy and won't be able to make it. I'll try another time when you host this again. Too bad, I had even ordered & received my soldering kit :(

      No worries Nick. We'll be around late tonight if things change or any other Wednesday or Friday if they don't. Soldering night is usually the third Wednesday, but we solder frequently on other nights too. See you soon.
