Electronic basics links

I started in electronics in 1950 as a hobby - amateur radio - then on to technical school. I am very new to MIDI! I see some of the postings saying that the posters are new to electronics, soldering, etc., so in the spirit of helping others ( the way I had help when I was 12 years old!), here are some links that will give you some great information.
http://www.aade.com/ check - the links page, check the soldering how-to link
http://www.aade.com/sexypnls.htm - how to make panel overlays
http://www.electronics-tutorials.com/ - tutorials starting with basic electronics
http://www.morsex.co...ilding/atoz.htm - electronics construction how-to
http://www.eio.com/ - besides the surplus stuff, check the technical forums
I hope these may be of help. I will probably be asking many, many MIDI related questions when I get my MIDIbox built.

Well, the pitch is 0.65 mm like in TQFP. I soldered a few of these last week and it´s really no problem with the right equipment. You just shouldn´t try to solder the pins individually. I´ve got a Weller soldering station with a "Hohlkehlenspitze", no idea what the english word is for that. Its a tip that is slightly curved to suck up a bit of solder. Then you take some flux (the stuff coming in a syringe), pour it over the legs and pull straight over the legs with the iron. After cleaning the flux away, the result looks nearly industrial
Google translates "Hohlkehlenspitze" as "Fillet point"

I am attempting to find a collection of tutorials that we could put in a sticky thread for the noobs (like myself). Searching through thousands of forum posts gets tedious, really quickly.
