New kit: SMD Soldering Practice Kit

We’ve got a new kit perfect for people looking to learn how to solder SMD parts. The SMD Soldering Practice Kit comes with a range of common parts from big to small, so you can ease your way down to the tinnier components. It also includes 3 pages of full color instructions and illustrations of ideal techniques and finished joints.


CuriousInventor launched in late 2006 (pre-arduino era!) as a place to enable hobbyists, students, and musicians to create their own technology. We sold open-source kits and tools, and offered numerous guides & videos on things like soldering, metal working, screws, electronics, and more. 

The store is now mostly empty, but we’ve kept the product pages and guides up since they have useful information. Many of our guides and videos still rank on the first page of google searches and have been seen millions of times.
