I was working on a little circuit on a nerf blaster and stopped the project like half way through. I store my soldering iron in my toolbox and it gives me anxiety because the lead has touched the tip and the tip has touched everything in my toolbox so now it has traces of lead. There are also pieces of solder still on my table which gives me anxiety as well. How do you store your soldering irons mens?
Seriously though, its fine. Just don't eat that shit aka, clean your desk properly and wash your hands after soldering. Maybe store the iron somewhere else.
there is more sources out there.
Just don't eat the solder and you will be fine. It is not like lead is that bad for you just there in your toolbox or as pellets on your desk.
Also you can get lead free solder if you want for future use.
Yeah thanks but the reply. I’ll probably actually just stick with the lead solder because i read that the fumes from non lead solder are actually worse than the lead solder. And yeah I always practice like good ‘hygiene’ so to speak
