I learned to solder by watching youtube "how to solder"videos. Never ever soldered anything before owning a pin. Part of owning a pin is learning how to fix them and soldering is something one must learn. So far, I have done eos switches, 3 banks of new targets, and new cabinet flipper switches which all were soldered by me. I get all excited when I actually fix my pin on my own. Its a great feeling, and confidence builder. If I can learn so can you, have patience. Now get to soldering and fix your pin, I know you can!
