Question about quantity of solder needed for a build

Hello everyone :wave: :slightly_smiling_face:

I did a search and couldn’t find a topic where this was already addressed, so please forgive me if this has been answered somewhere else.

I have ordered a Kyria kit recently. It will be my first build, and my question is this:

How much solder would I need for this build? I was going to order a spool, and I don’t want to order more than I need if that can be helped. Would one of these 50 gram spools of 5mm 60/40 get me all the way through the project?

Yep, that should be enough!


Good advice here too - Gio's starter guide to tools, when you know your going off the deep end

I have mostly bought solder in these size containers, and they still last multiple boards -

Good luck!

Do you think that one (or both) of those tubes would be enough to complete my build?

One should be plenty. :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: remember you are using just enough to make contact with switch legs and PCB.
