Wire Wrapping
◀ Intel Galileo ▲ Misc

I just got myself an "OK Industries WSU-30M" wire wrap tool with some Kynar wire.

I'm just about OK with soldering but I don't enjoy it to much. The equipment required, the mess and the fumes.

I learnt about wire wrapping and wanted to try it out, which I have and my first impressions were great.

The hardest part was trying to get hold of a wire wrap tool. Theres no Radio Shack in Athens and the downtown electronics store did not stock them. Also, I wanted one manufactured by "OK Industries" because it looks the part.

I'll have to change my workflow and think in a slightly different way to classic strip board component soldering and building.
