WEEKLY NEWS

Hi Rebecca

WebCast

We are planning our very first WebCast later this month on Saturday 20th April at 3PM BST. We had loads of request for topics for Andrew to demonstrate showing you techniques 'live' via webcam which should keep him busy for a couple of years. You will have the opportunity to ask him questions in real time or you can email the team in advance with your questions. The first WebCast is going to be all about the technique of soldering. It was the most asked for topic of discussion and with so many problems that can go wrong, you will get Andrew showing you exactly what to do and how to do it.

We still want your questions so why not email the team with your questions you have on soldering. Is there a particular area you are having trouble with? Do you have problems soldering thin wire to large sheet? Finding that the solder melts easily whilst the piece does not get up to heat? In fact, any questions you have on soldering, please email Devhan and hopefully Andrew will be able to answer them. We will also be recording the WebCast which will be available on At The Bench a few days after the broadcast. So Click here to email Devhan with your questions.

Below we have included Country times at which Andrew will be live. Make a date in your diary. More details and how to register to watch Andrew will follow in a few days.

Members Gallery

Don't forget we would love to see what you are creating. Upload them to the gallery. It's a great place to showcase At The Bench members work. The upload section is at the bottom of the page HERE
